She talks to herself
in the woods
Everybody knows
She’s not of this place
She ran from
The look of a blind man
To a pool of water
Full of all her wonder
Halo, no halo

He leaks all over
Hoping for anyone, anywhere
This cowboy, this lonesome,
loaded cowboy
She’s lonely too
And wants what he gives out
Oh lonely,
She’ll take what he spills out
Halo, no halo
Halo, no halo

They tumbled around
in her daydream
’Til the sun stopped shining
And the clouds fell
on the go-round
When the rain hit the tin roof
It made his heart jump away
And the smell of her
sweet love on him
Turned into the cold sweat
of a runaway cowboy
Cowboy, unbroken cowboy
Cowboy
gidyup gidyup gidyup
gidyup gidyup
gidyup gidyup gidyup
gidyup gidyup

If he can keep up with the wind
He’ll probably live forever
Too bad
he never looked back to see
His immortality
Sowed in her heaven
The unplanned miracle
In her heaven
Halo, broken halo
Halo, broken halo

She sings a lullaby
as she walks home
To the woods
with the pool of water
Where the wind don't blow
and the bows don't break
She’s gonna weave a rocker
for the baby
But not the giddyup cowboy
Who could only hear wisdom
In the howling of the hand
rocks him
and carries him away
Cowboy, unbroken cowboy
Cowboy
gidyup gidyup gidyup
gidyup gidyup
gidyup gidyup gidyup
gidyup gidyup
