Sufjan Stevens lyrics : "The Owl And The Tanager"

All I had hoped for
I kept inside your car
The rabbit in the barn

Most of all I wait
I wait beside the door; I wait beside the door


All I was wrong trembling in the cage
I was diamonds in the cage
In seven hours I consider death

And your father called to yell at me
You little boy, you little boy


Found out you cheated me
I ran behind the barn and cut my hands somehow
Blood in the meadowlark

I punched your ears instead
I punched you in the head
You only laughed and laughed and laughed


How I was wrong tingling from the kill
Tickle me until you devil bird you evil still

Slept on my arms, I was sleeping in the sill
I was sleeping in the room with you
You little boy, you little boy


How could you run from me now?
The loneliest chime in the house

The loneliest chime in the house
You let it out you let it out
Come to me Calvary still

I'm weeding and raking until
I'm bleeding in spite of my love for you
It bruised and bruised my will


Counting alluvial plains
The breathing inside of the range

You touched me inside of my cage
Beneath my shirt your hands embraced me
Come to me feathered and frayed

For I am the ugliest prey,
For I am the ugliest prey
The owl, the reckless reckless praise.


You said you'd wait for me
Down by Tannery Creek

Far out by the roadside where we used to kiss behind the sheets
Wrapped in a blanket of red
The Owl and the Tanager said

The Owl and the Tanager said
One waits until the hour is death
