Black Cherry Blood

http://jaythomas.bandcamp.com/track/black-cherry-blood

Two hundred years
Drinking and walking
I drift by the moon
You gave me champagne
While I was avoiding the sun

Don’t let me say
I never really thought I’d feel this way
I never felt so cool
It’s different the second time with you
I never felt so bad
Zydeco dancing in your head
will settle down soon

Now you’re on the trip.
You said,
“Yeah I’m really tripping now”
But watch the café, we’re coming up on Du Monde,
There’s blood on your lip.

The tarot reader
separated astronomy from astrology,
she’s a telescope.
We read Aristotle over sangria
and broke from the prison of the southern bank
for a minute of free trade—
She eventually declined our ride—
But I think that she’ll believe again
in free land

Straight into Orleans
Hand me those strings from my gig bag
How am I to know if you’d get in the way?
Black Cherry Blood, you’re sweet
but would you get in the way?

Don’t let me drain you
and don’t drain me in
my day sleep

And I would save this sucking night
with a cliché
“I never felt so cool”
It’s different the second time with you
I never felt so rad
I just think that I’ll regret doing this to you

Straight out of Orleans
I know you wanna go with me up river
How am I to know if you’d get in the way?
Black Cherry Blood, I need to know if you’d get in the way

Or if I’d get in the way.
