Loretta And The Insect World - Lyrics

I just said goodbye to my lover, Loretta
For the very last time
No more would she lie
Now would I upset her

And we'd wish the same to no one
There was liquor if needed
Five miles down a dangerous road
There was plenty of nothing right here

If I needed to explode
I stood and watched my child sleep
And it felt warm to stand
Beside her dreams

I'd been distracted and taken up
With a love, or so Retta had seemed
And the howling wind
Became my friend again

Instead of something we'd hide against
It felt good to feel our love in the past tense
It was then when love turned from
Wonder and lust to just sin

And the whole insect world wanted in
There were slave ants, stink bugs
And scorpions with those tails, all kinds of spiders
And the sheen of dragonfly sails

Writer(s): Howe Gelb
