lyrics

Hunting My Dress - Jesca Hoop

And the tall trees all fall down
And they scatter seeds on the ground
And one is lost and one is found
Water is moving underground

When I was a young girl
I would sleep in a tall tree
On the down of bending boughs

And from the mount of his shoulders
I would traverse the valleys
Through his dusk
And dawning eyes

“I will let you in,” said the doe to my arrow,
“and you will wear my bones and my skin”

Hunting my dress
Love is ruthless

And in a nest from the forest
I would carry and ember
And with a burning heart we’d walk
And when he asks me to rest with him
I would lay down my fire
And in that heart we’d sing and talk

I am a raccoon and you are an owl
I will run from you in the mid of night
And we will strike a truce in the billowing tower
And we’ll eclipse the moon with our firelight

Hunting my dress
Love is ruthless

You love me in my dreams
It’s easier when I’m fast asleep
But I don’t want you to come to me anymore
The river bed has married me
But I don’t want you to come to me anymore

And out of ashes comes morning
And the ritual is bathing
In the pools at bridal falls
And from the mouth of my lover
I would drink of the river
And kiss his jade and marble walls

You will spill the red from my heart with your arrow
And you will make my bed under the red grass
And I will give my flesh
And my blood and my marrow
And you will wear my bones and my skin

Hunting my dress
Love is ruthless

And the tall trees all fall down
And they scattered seeds on the ground
And one is lost and one is found
Water is moving underground
And you're the one who showed to me the sky
It’s so much more than you and I
And darling we sure had a time
But the river is whispering goodbye
