Needed to find these lyrics so many times… that im posting them here now lol

Stalks Of Last Year’s Fruit

I sit in the sun
Listen to the bees hum in the wisteria
Can’t
help but imagine
The sort of honey you would have called forth from
this area
I miss your happiness, my friend

Hey, you should be careful
Misery is habit forming (Take it from
me)
You can get to thinking
That you’re not really living properly
if you’re not suffering
I miss that smile you used to wear
That
gift for joy you have
Must still be in there somewhere

Yes, I know you stuffed it up
You tell me all about it every day

It’s gone on long enough
And you know that, and still you act

As if the blues were here to stay
It’s ‘coz you’re so damn
stubborn
You don’t wanna let go of anything
Not the things you
might have had
Not the things you haven’t got
And not what used to
be

I hate to be harsh, dear
But there’s no excuse for a girl of your
class, dear
Someone with your background
To go moonin’ about as if
you’re not worth anything
Without a man around
The world is at
your feet

Oh darlin’, I know you miss your garden
But we don’t stand and
grieve among the stalks of last year’s fruit
We turn them in, we start
again
And we call forth something fresh and new
All these dead
things you have been clinging to
Will kill you
Get a move on, life
is waiting
And you have friends who love you
Everywhere you go,
they open up their homes
And they shower the best of love on you

All these dead dreams you have been clinging to
Will twist you

Come sit in the sun

Listen to the bees hum in the wisteria


Can’t help but imagine

The sort of wisdom you’ll be callin’ forth
from this experience


I miss your happiness, my friend

Oh, I miss
your happiness, my friend


That gift for joy you have

Must still be
in there somewhere


The world is at your feet
