"Song Up In Her Head" lyrics - SARAH JAROSZ

"Song Up In Her Head"

The Virgin Mary all dressed in blue
Sings "My first lover" for an audience of two
New York boy all dressed in black
Old leather boots, old soles intact
Time moves forward
And time moves back
Like a mixed up engineer
On an endless railroad track
Miles to go
From me to you
From a town that gets old
To a city that's new
This flame burns brighter
With every poem read
This bird flies higher with the song up in her head
Time moves slow
And time moves fast
The future now will soon be past
