lifeblood: songs: lyrics: little perennials


back in the long
stretch of loneliness
that i have come to call a living
i'm getting something
for this love's labor
even when i am forgetting
(we oh)
and oh we oh oh
(we oh)
(we oh)
little perennials
(we oh)
(we oh)
where'd you come from

daughter of
my father's second cousin
loyalties i got em by the dozen
we share a past
we share a blood relation
and that's as good as an invitation
(we oh)
and oh we oh oh
(we oh)
(we oh)
little perennials
(we oh)
(we oh)
where'd you come from
(we oh)
(we oh)
(we oh)
(we oh)
and oh we oh oh
(we oh)
(we oh)
little perennials
(we oh)
(we oh)
where'd you come from
(we oh)

i'm in the north
carolina mountains
(carolina)
just to the west
of where i met my calling
(of where we met)
if you look south
to the foothills of these mountains rising
(to the blue horizon)
that's the place where it feels good falling
(that's the place where it feels the best)
that's the place where it feels good falling
(that's the place where it feels the best)
that's the place that i know
(that's the place where it feels good falling)

i look for words
to fill the empty spaces
all the life revealed in these back stages
i reach for names
like little puzzle pieces
oh perennial come to me
(we oh)
and oh we oh oh
(we oh)
(we oh)
little perennials
(we oh)
(we oh)
where'd you come from
(we oh)
(we oh)
(we oh)
(we oh)
and oh we oh oh
(we oh)
(we oh)
little perennials
(we oh)
(we oh)
so where'd you come from
(we oh)
