Oh, I feel a heavy rain a-fallin' on my shoulders.
Oh, I hear a demon wind a-blowin' down my doors.
Oh, I see a hurricane approachin' from the ocean.
Oh no, I see a lioness encroachin' on my borders.

I hold my hands up to warn her.
I say her secret name.
I wrap my body around her.
I calm the storm.

And in the shadows there's a rattlesnake a-slitherin'
to sink its teeth into her, sink its teeth into her.
And in the lamplight there's a silhouette a-shiverin'
to feel that heat again, feel it on her skin.

I hold my hands up to warm her.
I kiss her shakin' lips.
I clothe her body in fire.
I bring the rain.

I hold my hands up to ward her.
I touch her sacred place.
I lay her body to rest.
I heal her flesh.

Oh, I feel that mornin' sun a-shinin' on my weary bones.
Oh no, I watch my lioness a-walk on down that empty road.
