Men in Tuxedos lyrics

Track 10 from The Other Country

I won’t wear my heart out on men in tuxedos
Unless they dance all night on the lawn
And kiss my eyes in the morning
with hearts newly born
Newly born

The light it blows through my upstairs window
I hear the man knocking at the door
The gulls they sing from my chimney
I won’t wear my heart out any more

I am a woman has drunk deep of shadow
Whose loneliness stalks the road without starts

I won’t wear my heart out on men in tuxedos
Unless they dance all night on the lawn
And kiss my eyes in the morning with hearts newly born
Newly born

I won’t waste my time on fast boys and whiskey
Unless they go the distance to Mars
I picked the wild berries
I’ve rode my black through the snow
