TWO COYOTES

Your smile was silver, your skin it was gold
When I first met you, truth is I didn’t know
That there were borders & border lords
That something illegal could be something so pure

You said don’t be scared, darling
That’s what they want
Try not to feed them, cause they have enough
& moneys the devil, property too
Compassion is barren & distance is cruel

I drew you two coyotes
Put them in your coat
In hopes you would retrieve them
& always keep them close

Said if you get lonely, i’ll be your guide
& when you feel frightened, we’ll find some place to hide
But it’s hard to feel grateful to be sharing the stars
As I love you through pictures & telephone wires

I drew you two coyotes
Put them in your coat
In hopes you would retrieve them
& always keep them close

I drew you two coyotes
Put them in your coat
In hopes you would retrieve them
& always keep them close
