Devendra Banhart – Poughkeepsie lyrics

By the banks of old Poughkeepsie
My love swam with me
Nature's tender bones are breathing lungs
Each breaths each breeze
Have you felt it have you
I've felt it too
And so have you
Summer days she stays by her window
Her saggy flesh it sweeps the floor
Down her steps and through her hallway
Comin out her door
Have you seen it have you
I've seen that too
And so have you
Now man holds hands hand neck shaped cobweb
White oil fills each pore
Again down your steps and through your hallways
Jumpin out your door
And have you done it
I've done that too
And so have you
Well love me tender
Viva Las Vegas and now I'm all shook up
Heartbreak hotel
Lordy miss cordy
Blue moon blue suede shoes
And have you heard it have you
I've heard it too
And I know for sure
