When you mend the badges on my clothing
You know every thread goes through my heart
Guessing that the river's gonna dry up
Well I said that's not the reason why we bar

Looking round the corner where I left you
Wondering what ever led me there
Knowing that a quite unconscious feeling
Could be bought to drown a memory anywhere

She said I don't want your medicine and I don't need a sparrow in my
  heart
When I'm covered by the thunder I get rid of all your breath deep in my
  lungs
Spreading the wind apart

And when I touched the ceiling on a spring day
Wishing it could heat up every crow
So that they could lift me by my shoulders
Take me from this frozen lake and let you know

She said I want to be your medicine I want to feed the sparrow in your
  heart
When I'm covered by the thunder I'll get rid of all my breath deep in our
  lungs
Spreading the wind apart

Hell I'm still standing round the corner where I left you
Digging up a quite sufficient trap
Never knowing you're behind that angle
With a tranqualizer gun in your sweet hand

Oh I want to be your medicine I want to feed the sparrow in your heart
When we're covered by the thunder we become just what I'm feel a
  lightning shard
Spreading the wind apart
