Worm's Meat Lyrics

by Candice Jarrett

Oh, I am fortune’s fool
No matter what I do
I can’t help thinking of you

Lord, what have I gone and done?
I’ve made the assumption
I was the only one

They’ll make worm’s meat of me
That’s why I have to leave
And I’m gonna take you with me
Baby
Tonight you’ll scale all these stones
Climb up to my window
Show me what it takes to be my Romeo
Oh

The rabble has arrived
They’re right on my front porch
They’re waving their pitchforks
They turn my home to a torch

The screen door slams
We run as fast as we can
Hunted by beast and man
The grass becomes quicksand

They’ll make worm’s meat of me
That’s why I have to leave
And I’m gonna take you with me
Baby
Tonight you’ll scale all these stones
Climb up to my window
Show me what it takes to be my Romeo
Oh

Sticks and stones may break my bones
But by any other name it’s still a rose
And with a kiss, seal this promise
Mine is the one and only name on your lips

They’ll make worm’s meat of me
That’s why I have to leave
And I’m gonna take you with me
Baby

Tonight they’re throwing their stones
Escape through my window
You’ve got what it takes to be my hero
Oh

They’ll make worm’s meat of us
Now they’ve got us on the run
Set sail straight for that setting sun
My love

Tonight we’re two skipping stones
We’ve got them on their toes
Where we stop they’ll never know

It’s just you and me
On our own
In your arms I’m always home

Oh, I am fortune’s fool
No matter what I do
I can’t help thinking of you
