John Moreland - Cherokee lyrics

I guess I've got a taste for poison I've given up on ever being well I keep mining the horizon Digging for lies I've yet to tell I wish you were here to softly say name Calm down all the chemicals tearing through my brain I don't think I've missed you this much since I was seventeen I'd call you in the morning but I think this is a dream Cherokee Cherokee Where you carved those doubts right out of me I see you shining through the treetops But I don't feel you pulling strings anymore I still use your old alarm clock Every morning I get further off of course And don't I hear you speaking in the noises of this house Airplanes flying over shaking all my secrets out Now darling tell me something I don't already know I'm aware of where to find you It hurts too bad to go To Cherokee Cherokee Where you carved those doubts right out of me I felt like the world was burning You had stars in your eyes Shining for a feeling I can't afford to buy Everything you taught me still rattles in my head I'm staying off of Main Street You're talking to the dead In Cherokee Cherokee I wish you'd carve these doubts right out of me
