I'm A Rabbit, I'm A Fox Lyrics

I’M A RABBIT, I’M A FOX EP

I’m A Rabbit, I’m A Fox

Finding my path through the crowd
like a rip in the tide
like a trail on the hillside

Dodging the flock their heads to the ground
They don’t look up to the field
I want to scare them with a sound

I’m a rabbit, I’m a rabbit, I’m a fox
I’m a rabbit, I’m a rabbit, I’m a fox

I’m a lion pretending not to care
throwing glances like a spy
so lazy I don’t need to try

There’s something very, very sad about a girl
who wants to put on all her fur
alone forever

I’m a rabbit, I’m a rabbit, I’m a fox
I’m a rabbit, I’m a rabbit, I’m a fox

Nesting in roots
burrowing down
Losing my sight
I don’t need that now
Other senses grow
other senses change
Oh no, I’m not hearing things

I’m a mole
I’m a moth
I’m a rabbit, I’m a rabbit, I’m a fox

My life spans only a few years
Got to make the most of life
while I am here

So I’m just a girl on the door step to your room
and I’m writing a tune
I write them all for you

I’m a rabbit
I’m a lion
I’m a fox
I’m a tiger
I’m a mole
I’m a moth

I Want To Be The Woman

I can’t control this force that rides you
like you’re a horse that’s been broken in

When every face looks like the master’s
I try to pull you close
but you’re always running from him

I want to be the woman with that strange and precious gift
When I whisper in your ear you stop and calm down
and I’m the only one that knows how

Scratching the face of fear off the mind’s eye
it’s hard work but we’re doing it together

Now we’re tied forever
like two children born for each other

I’ll race you to the finish
Ride you to the quiet place
Urge you to the river inch by inch
and by God I’ll make you have a taste

I want to be the woman with that strange and precious gift
When I whisper in your ear you stop and calm down
and I’m the only one that knows how

They Used To Be Blue

Me and my girl
remember those times?
Are you caught there too?

What was I like back then
when it was just us
and that roof top view

Your friend fell in love with me
We were just in love with happiness
Even though it was really just selfishness

Sometimes I wake and see
that the sky looks just like it used to
when I was a small child
it has that same sad mild hue

I know now it never changed
just my eyes did
They used to be blue

Alone In The Valley

I thought that you were sitting in the garden
You must have finished earlier
and you’d just let yourself in

But I’m alone in my little garden

Early the next morning you were rustling in the hallway
You must have fallen asleep
last night when we were talking

But I’m alone, you’d left in the evening

Will you go
must you go home on Christmas?
You’re a black sheep in your family
Whereas people mistake us for twins

So let’s be alone. Let’s be alone on Christmas

The world comes through your body
You are the shadowed valley
You roll up to the mountain
You’re taking me
You’re taking me

I’m alone
Alone in the valley
