lyrics

Blackberries and Pine Needles

That Emerald Road that runs to Mississippi
Where you see the dirt turn from black to red
I'm going there but I don't think you'll miss me
There I won't know those lies you said

Blackberries and Pine Needles
They catch me and brush on by
Blackberries and Pine Needles
Tear my skin and make me cry

Memories sitting there beside you
Those moments now still haunt me
Which start just staring at this campfire
The stars alone can fill my dreams

Blackberries and Pine Needles
They catch me and brush on by
Blackberries and Pine Needles
Tear my skin and make me cry
Blackberries and Pine Needles
They hurt me just like your lies
Blackberries and Pine Needles
Tear my skin and I cry

All alone on that old porch swing
It's getting late but what can I do?
I've thought it out, I know that when I leave here
that Emerald Road won't take me back to you...
Back to you

Blackberries and Pine Needles
They catch me and brush on by
Blackberries and Pine Needles
Tear my skin and make me cry
Blackberries and Pine Needles
They hurt me just like your lies
Blackberries and Pine Needles
Tear my skin and I cry
Cry
And I cry

That Emerald Road that runs to Mississippi
Where you see the dirt turn from black to red
