​Sacred Ground

This song is by Over the Rhine and appears on the Double album Meet Me At The Edge Of The World (2013).

Love me like a memory held too long
Like the need to feel some forgotten song

Kiss me to chills like there's only me
Like it's hard to kill the last cottonwood tree

Love me later when the stars fall down
A burning light for a wedding gown

They stole the blood right out of this ground
They'd still kick a flower when it's down

Help me trace the scars on mountains
The sun that sets in a bloody fountain
Take me home and lay me down
On the hungry earth (Love me, love me)
On the sacred ground

Love me like the breath you held too deep
Like the need you feel to lay still beneath

Leave me with teeth marks on my skin
Like some holy spirit's tryna get in

Love me like a rumor you can't outlive
Like the deepest cut you'll ever forgive

They stole my blood right out of this ground
They'd still kick a flower when it's down

Help me trace the scars on mountains
The sun that sets in a bloody fountain
Take me home and lay me down
On the hungry earth (Love me, love me)
On the sacred ground
