Bitter Fruits

lyrics

Meet me by the river
Underneath the willow tree
Where the bitter fruits are hanging
Bruised and lonely

And when you look at me, tell me what you see
Is it the girl that cried? Is it the girl that died?
And when you left me here, did you still hold me dear
Or was I just another player in your fantasy?
When you look at me, tell me what you see
Was I the girl who shared, or just the girl who bared?
And now you see me sleep with secrets that I'll keep
From now until forever locked inside of me

Take me to the water,
To the current cold and swift
Where the bitter fruits are hanging
Like a promise, like a gift

When you look at me, tell me what you see
Is it the girl that cried? Is it the girl that died?
And when you left me here, did you still hold me dear
Or was I just another player in your fantasy?
When you look at me, tell me what you see
Was I the girl who shared, or just the girl who bared?
And now you see me sleep with secrets that I'll keep
From now until forever locked inside of me

Leave me by the river
Where I feed the willow tree
Where the bitter fruits are growing
Bruised and lonely

When you look at me, tell me what you see
Is it the girl that cried? Is it the girl that died?
And when you left me here, did you still hold me dear
Or was I just another player in your fantasy?
When you look at me, tell me what you see
Was I the girl who shared, or just the girl who bared?
And now you see me sleep with secrets that I'll keep
From now until forever locked inside of me.

Meet me by the river
Where the bitter fruits grow
