she had a bouquet of black balloons
she floated away like in cartoons
she's looking down from heaven now
all fear and wonder, all hope and doubt
in the sweet hereafter my angel croons
all because of a bouquet of black balloons

the oar slapped the creek bed
one dark october weekend
the road ahead, here it gathers like a ribbon
here it coils like a rattler
goes crooked as an antler
here it tangles like an ancient tree
