a video I created for Jolie Holland's 'Palmyra' blustery winter afternoon...
I do not own the any of the images included in this video.

Only a few old petals left, from the rose that
touched your hand
My little heart is a graveyard, it's a no man's land

You could tell I didn't care. You kept pushing till I did
Woke up in a pit of despair on your bed,
And I wondered how I could do without you
How absurd

Put my lipstick back on. Looked myself in the eye
I'm headed out in the cold, hard world
And I'm getting very good at saying my goodbyes
My goodbyes

Can you read the inscription?
It seems to once have said
"He better take me with him
When he goes I'm good as dead"

Put some roses on the stones. Look your friends in the eye
If nothing else we've got that old second line
And I'll dance at your funeral if you dance at mine
You dance at mine

They took it all and I don't care. I already said my farewell
Sweet Palmyra and old Ninth Ward
Hard to hit that long, hard road that passes straight through Hell
Straight through Hell

I wish you well, sweet Palmyra
