Lyrics[edit | edit source]

Well you were standing in the door 
While I wondered what you were waiting for 
I saw the wild strawberries on the vine 
Out of control 

While I was trying to think of something clever 
You were saying nothing whatsoever 
I saw the berries throw their hooks into the soil 
Felt the blood between us churning thick as motor oil 

We'd come from California 
The air around you was familiar to me now 
If you were gazing westward 
I was looking at you again 
Yeah
