Naked Trees

This song is by Me Like Bees and appears on the album The Ides (2013).

Hey, we'll inch out all these miles
All our friends' houses in piles
Either side they're forming aisles
We'll breathe those fallen walls out 'til we choke
Amongst the naked trees we'll bear the yoke

I was north helping a old friend park his tired soul
And while a song to help his belle along was due
My town down south cut in with its own tune
But I couldn't make it out, those phones were dead
That didn't stop the whole world from feeling it

Bared its snout, the sky opened up and showed its teeth
I heard you heard your house get chewed through from underneath
Everyone was screaming
Loup! Le Loup! Le Loup! Le Loup! Le Loup!

And so now you can't sleep when you hear rain
Your mind keeps bracing for that howl again

Hey, let's look this in the eye
Fear only causes divide
Don't feel guilt for troubled skies
For by the hair of our collective chin
Lord knows it wasn't we who let it in

De nulle part le Loup souffla et le Loup souffle!
Miracles! Miracles! Wind and grace, wrath and mercy!
Heroes and suitors, villains and looters sifted out in the scrum
But it's not done
It's still at home on every tongue

I was north heading southward course when you first called
When I arrived, I found you all despite the wreck
That was all that you had ever owned
Good lord we sang it
Loup! Le Loup! Le Loup! Le Loup! Le Loup!

And so now you can't sleep when you hear rain
Your mind keeps bracing for that howl again

Hey, let's look this in the eye
Cease this mind-wrapping of why
Don't feel guilt for troubled skies
I know it seems for miles the world's at end
But even in all this are naked trees greening again

Notes:

"Le Loup" translates to "The Wolf."

"De nulle part le Loup souffla et le Loup souffle" translates to "Out of nowhere the wolf huffed and puffed."
