Featuring Heather McEntire

lyrics

She drew a map, a map to show me where her people lived at
a napkin map, imagine that we sat in a corner kinda trapped
time lapsed for some hours and some halves

And then we laughed and pointed down at the atlas
naming all the waters, manmade borders
distance grew sorta shorter over orders of hashbrowns
we was at the wafflehouse and after that
we walked into the nighttime air
awkward stare
where she said

Lover tear your barriers down, down
Lover tear your barriers down, down, down
Lover tear your barriers down, down
Lover tear your barriers down, down, down

I took her hand, her hand we walked to my apart-a-ment or flat
depending on where you from or at, but that remains absent
of the fact that man, I was falling, foreign as a walrus lost in a forest
her palm was like the softest, softer than fabric softener
her voice made the choicest noises, pretty as an orchid
I longed to understand what she said, damn
so I said
