The Beekeeper's Daughter

from by Erik Sanko

lyrics

There's the color of tea that's been steeping too long,
steeped in memory of buzzing yellow swarms.
But if you show me your room I'll gladly show you mine,
your beautiful cryptic tomb where nothing ever dies.
I wanted to ask her but words underwater
they get stuck in the syrup of the beekeeper's daughter.
There's the humming of trees where fragrant flags unfurl
and just a drop for the queen and another drop for the girl
I wanted to show her to build her an alter
with bee's wax for the mortar to the beekeeper's daughter.
I wanted to ask her but words underwater they get in the syrup
before they can adorn her and I wanted to show her,
to build her an alter with bee's wax for the mortar
to the beekeeper's daughter.
