The Woman of the Woods

lyrics

the woman of the woods
uprooted after all
she found me in the spring
and left me in the fall
with four years in between
i thought she just might stay
but leaving's more her thing
it's in her DNA

i wasn't meant to leave the city
she wasn't meant to land at all
we landed together in the country
but not once and for all

the woman of the woods
should not be held at fault
i pushed her out the door
she pulled a somersault

i wasn't meant to leave the city
she wasn't meant to land at all
we landed together in the country
but not once and for all

the woman of the woods
is more than of the earth
she's flying through the air
her domain is the world

i wasn't meant to leave the city
she wasn't meant to land at all
we landed together in the country
but not once and for all

maybe she will come back despite me
making her feel unwelcome here
i'd welcome her back but it is likely
she's onto the next frontier

i should've known it'd end up this way
basically dared her to call my bluff
women of woods should be held tightly
and i didn't hold enough
