Hemlock Grove Lyrics - Mark Erelli

Mark Erelli Chords




Your heart is dark as a hemlock grove
Where the sun never shines and nothing grows
Black as each feather in a murder of crows
Your heart is dark
As a hemlock grove

Your heart is empty as winter in a tourist town
The boardwalk deserted, all shuttered down
And every bird has flown--southbound
Your heart is empty
As winter in a tourist town

There is no resolution
Try as i might
I shun the darkness
But i shy away from the light
There's a hole inside
I try to fill
But you dig it
Deeper still

Love is crooked as the teeth in an old man's smile
As the stones in the graveyard, as a country mile
But i'll drive all night to get there if you let me stay awhile
Love is crooked
As the teeth in an old man's smile

Your heart is empty
As winter in a tourist town
Your heart is dark
As a hemlock grove
