Howling at the Earth (2015)

Written by Achilles Tenderloin

Tied my heart to a rocket for the moon
Sent my heart on a mission to the moon
There was nobody home. Now my heart’s marooned

Poor, little fool won’t make the homeward race
Packed no fuel to make the homeward race
Didn’t have room, now all he’s got is space

He said there’s nothin’ up there, but a flag stuck in the dirt
Found nothin’, just a flag. It was stuck in the dirt
Only knows one song, he’s just howlin’ at the earth

When your lover makes you lonesome, look up high
When your lover makes you lonesome, look up high
Find love alive, just hangin’ around the sky

He’s out there waitin’, out among the worlds
There’s love a-wastin’ bigger than the world
Can’t have you, don’t want no other girl

There’s nothin’ up here, but a flag stuck in the dirt
I found nothin’, just a flag stuck in the dirt
You only showed me one song–
I’m just up here, howlin’ at the earth

I always love finding out that someone connected with one of my songs and wants to share it in their own voice (their is allowed now, right?).

If you choose to do some copy and paste magic on the interverse, that’s cool, too, but I hope you’ll link back to this page on achillestenderloin.com as the source. Oh, and thanks for reading!
