      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'm 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 the Tannery Creek
       Far out by the clothesline 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
