lyrics

The blinds are drawn against the heat.
The backyard path can burn your feet.
My grandfather's praying while Grandma listens to the races.
We creep out the backdoor, not leaving any traces.

Past the trees all ripe with peaches, we steal three or four,
Down to the ones where nothing grows anymore.
The daylight it can blind you, but it's cool and dark in here,
In amongst the brambles and briars where no-one else comes near.

Where the grass won't grow
Where no-one else goes,
We hide underneath the mulberry tree,
The mulberry tree, the mulberry tree.

Down at the end of the yard, where we're not meant to go,
By the broken fence where they tethered the goat.
He's bucking and braying and tugging on the line,
He's watching us close with his one good eye.

We don't have a name for the thing between us.
Forgive us our mortal sins and all our misdemeanors.
When the heat lets up and the sky turns black,
As the rain starts to fall we hurry quickly back.

Where the grass won't grow
Where no-one else goes,
We hide underneath the mulberry tree,
The mulberry tree, the mulberry tree.
