Magnolia Wine

from The Tallest Towers by Evil English

lyrics

There's a shock of gold in the poplar tree
Magnolia up the street from me
Your bitter blossom more better than wine
I drink it up in the summer time

And oh, does life seem to be a series of failures and victories
And all that I love is but a temporary shade from the abrasive sun above me

I till the field in the blistering sun
No I won't go home until the day is done
The few memories that I could call mine
We would fall in love if I had the time

And oh, you're lovely, but your loveliness means nothing to me
And oh, stay on the move, you've got nothing to have you've got nothing to lose

I push and pull, try to mold it to me
The cracks in the clay expose the naked body
Cover me up with your leaves and vines,
with your thick dark soil, and your long leaf pines

And oh, does life seem to be a series of failures and victories
And all that I love is but a temporary shade from the abrasive sun
And oh, you're lovely, but your loveliness means nothing to me
And oh, stay on the move, you've got nothing to have you've got nothing to lose
