Track Name: Cradle Robber
I want to steal you from your man
take you far away
and build a home up in the forest
lay to sleep on your breast

So hide the things we do at night
your husband drinks in the town
I cross the long fields and pastures
find you working in the yard

I want to steal you from your man
he lays to sleep against your back
my child swells against your stomach
a raven tangle of wind

So hide the things we do alone
i press my lips on your skin
and sing a song of the forest
I am the egg thief, the cradle robber
Track Name: Bury Me In The Garden
When I'm gone my darling
gonna bury me in the garden
lay my weary head under the soil.
Raise a crop above me
of cooking herbs and ivy.
I will climb my way back to our loving home

Stay with my darling
embrace me in darkness
hold me until the morning breaks the sky.
Stay with me darling
enfold me in silence
I knew nothing until you held me in your arms

When I'm gone my darling
gonna bury me in the garden
and lay my weary head under the soil.
My body has been borrowed
from the earthworm and the sparrow.
I am everything that cycles and returns.

Stay with my darling
embrace me in darkness
hold me until the morning breaks the sky.
Stay with me darling
enfold me in silence
we are young and we are years away from gone.

When I'm gone my darling
gonna bury me in the garden
lay my weary head under the soil.
Raise a crop above me
of cooking herbs and ivy.
I will climb my way back to our loving home
