Lyrics

Between the birds and the bees

That's where she finds me

Whistling on the breeze

As the sap flows fresh from the trees

Her poison is so sweet

Quickly bring me to my knees

Lay down next to me under our

Foxglove hollow

Sun beat down upon
a grass filled meadow
as we searched on and on
For our small shred of shadow
We made our nest upon
The back of a black widow
Run away into my
Foxglove hollow

This could be your Eden
You could be mine, my Eve
Run away into our
Humble foxglove abode


Your foxglove Hollow
My foxglove
Our foxglove, Hollow
Our foxglove

Between the birds and the bees

That's where she finds me

Whistling on the breeze

As the sap flows fresh from the trees.

Her poison is so sweet

Quickly bring me to my knees

Lay down next to me under our

Our foxglove hollow

Between the birds and the bees

That's where she finds me

Whistling on the breeze

As the sap flows fresh from the trees

Her poison is so sweet

So sweet

Bring me to my knees

In our foxglove hollow

Put pure and simply, Foxglove Hollow is a love song. 

Imagine a glorious summer's day with flowers in bloom and a natural backdrop. 

All good love songs need to have a hint of danger and in the lyrics I tried to capture this with the duality of a foxglove; both beautiful and poisonous. 

Let me know in the comments below if you make any other connections, I'm really interested to see hear how this song makes you feel.
