Howe Gelb – Loretta And The Insect World lyrics

I just said goodbye to Loretta,
my lover, for the last time
no more would she lie nor would I upset her
and wish the same to no one

there was liquor if needed
5 miles down a dangerous road
there was plenty of nothing
right here if I need to explode

I turned to watch my child sleep
It felt good and warm to stand beside her dreams
I had been distracted by a love
Or so 'retta had seemed

And the howling wind became my good friend
Instead of something we would hide against
And it felt good to feel our love
In the past tense

it was then when love turned from wonder
and lust to just sin..... to just sin
it was then when love turned from wonder
and lust to just sin..... to just sin
and the whole insect world wanted in

there were slave ants
and stink bugs
and scorpians with those tails
all kinds of spiders
and the shimmer of green
dragon fly sails
