Worm Was Wood
Simone White Lyrics


worm was wood
snail was an ocelot
the deer in the headlights
was a marigold in bloom
lily was light
and a teardrop was a grain of sand
you were counting sweaters
while sheep were howling at the moon

earth was flat
and sugar fly was sewer-rat
the leaves that were blowing
were still growing when we left

bird was bug
and billy was a beetle too
i was in love with you
how quickly we forget

we forget the clothes we wear
were only fur and feathers
we held the world together without proof
we forget the lies we tell were yet to be invented
and we lived with only instinct and the truth

snake was stick
and branches were open arms
the tide came in
and it covered up our bed

worm was wood
this used to be a neighbourhood
you made a promise
how quickly we forget
how quickly we forget
