LyricsEdit

The last white slabs of snow
Melted off seven weeks ago
And the geese are headed north again
Through the tightening sky
And I can feel my heart in my throat again
New onions growing in the ground

The cows come gingerly out of the barn
And when they see that the ground is warm
They pick up a little speed
It makes me feel so good
And then I feel it rushing down my throat—fresh blood
I head out onto the earth
Its cold heart is melting
I don't know if I can stand it
Springtime's coming, that means you'll be coming back around
New onions growing underground
Underground
