LyricsEdit

I saw you at your window
I saw you in the sun
I saw you in the window looking out

I reached my hand in there
Then I touched your hair 
And felt myself burn in the morning

And the chickens were screaming
Black dog at my heels
And the bluejays were coughing up in the trees

I'd forgotten my name
I felt kind of ashamed
And felt myself burn in the morning

I saw you at your window
At the beginning of summer
And invisible stars sent their heat down

I imagined your touch
It was almost too much
Burned like a bonfire in the morning
