See the Woman

You were a hunter of my heart, and I got caught in the snares

You knew how to love a man, in spite of the ways you don’t understand

Now you’re a thousand miles gone, and I only have your name

You told me you would follow, wherever I would go

Now i’m the lion in the cage, and you’re the jackals howling tune

You came to be with your dreams from a land so far away

It’s where I’ll build my home, somehow someday

We met that time, and then again, and I got hooked on you

Even the forgone heart of her could barely hold me true

This town is much lonelier without you around

And every bad thing seems to bring me down

I drank your sweet affections, and ate the bitters too

Now I don’t know what to do, just pass the time and think of you…
