Back in the Tall Grass Lyrics

Home isn't open
It's like, when you get here
The tracks by the creek bed
The minnow's the body
Crawdads with their heads down low
Back in the tall grass
Stinging my cattails oh!
Looking for brother
It feels like winter
But it's the heart of the summer
We can't go swimming
As long as we slumber
-
Cuz we're a long way from home
A long way from home
How did we get here?
---
One step takes me home
Two steps back on my own
Three skips to each stone
Four steps back and I'm gone
------
And I wanted you to know
I was thinking about you
And you look like a rose
Especially, when I'm a long way from home
---
A long way from home
-
How did we get here?
Back to the body
Words jump like salmon

One step takes me home
Two steps back on my own
Three skips to each stone
Four steps back and I'm gone

(Chorus)

In that backwater
Running through the woods
In that red water
In the mirror
Thinking of you

Spend all day just thinking of you
In the mirror thinking of you
Spend my days just thinking of you

(Chorus)

Long way from home
(Long way from home)
Long way from home
(Long way from home)
Long way from home...
