these golden jewels lyrics – handsome family

i left a black shoe hanging
from a telephone wire
i threw hubcaps in the bushes
filled the creek with burning tires

i drove circles in the meadow
threw tvs off a cliff
i scattered dirty needles
in a gr*ssy ditch

shopping carts of garbage
overturned in silver ponds
in fields of wild mustard
i abandoned several cars

at the edge of town
these golden jewels
i left them all for you

you, hiding in the falling leaves
and the spider’s dew-dropped ring
you, lying in the muddy river
with ten thousand wild wings

i will set the world on fire
pluck the stars down from the sky
if you will spend with me, my dear
a single summer night

at the edge of town
my golden jewel
i’m waiting here for you
