lyrics

I'll give you a lift, if you've got a sieve
you can help me sift for gold in the river
I'll give you ride if you've got the time,
but I'm taking the scenic way home

And in the dark woods at night, if the lions tear you apart
then the crows will sew your bones back together by the morning light

I hide in the thickets, don't need any witness
because it's nobody's business but mine
I'll pay you a visit no matter the distance
and get back to my camp in the twilight

But in the dark woods at night, if the lions tear me apart
then the crows will sew my bones back together by the morning light

I've got a few on the side – hey you could be one of mine,
if you don't mind a little challenge once in a while
I take it in stride, but if you come back a second time,
you may find the road folds back over many times

And in the dark woods at night, if the lions tear you apart
then the crows will sew your bones back together by the morning light

And in the dark woods at night, when the lions tear us apart
then the crows will pick our bones clean by the morning light

I'll give you a lift, if you've got a sieve
you can help me sift for gold in the river
