Kathleen Edwards

He was the lone wolf you could see it in his eyes

The way he held his heart the way he held his lies

Sometimes he's just show up outside on the porch

And hour at a time like a lonely whore

She was a scarecrow the way she always looked around

For something she once had and never could be found

Time was on her side but she never kept track

All the hunters came and took her memories back

Once they met inside a dirty curtained room

And the rain fell down hard that day onto the tin roof

She said "I've seen you before, I've been looking for you

Better keep your heart close hunters are coming for you"

He said "I've seen them before and I always get away

Cuz you will never stop looking and I will never stay"

The lone wolf kissed her mouth like so many before

Scarecrow closed her eyes and then she closed the door

And the rain fell down on the tin roof when the hunters came that night

Stole all of her memories killed the wolf and all his lies
