    "Fruits Of My Labor" Lyrics

    Lucinda Williams

    Baby, see how I been living
    Velvet curtains on the windows too
    Keep the bright and unforgiving
    Light from shining through

    Baby, I remember all the things we did
    When we slept together
    In the blue behind your eyelids
    Baby, sweet baby

    Traced your scent through the gloom
    'Til I found these purple flowers

    I was spent, I was soon smelling you for hours

    Lavender, lotus blossoms too
    Water the dirt, flowers last for you
    Baby, sweet baby

    Tangerines and persimmons
    And sugarcane
    Grapes and honeydew melon
    Enough fit for a queen

    Lemon trees don't make a sound
    'Til branches bend and fruit falls to the ground
    Baby, sweet baby

    Come to my world and witness
    The way things have changed
    'Cause I finally did it, baby

    I got out of La Grange

    Got in my Mercury and drove out west
    Pedal to the metal and my luck to the test
    Baby, sweet baby

    I been tryin' to enjoy all the fruits of my labor
    I been cryin' for you boy but truth is my savior

    Baby, sweet baby if it's all the same
    Take the glory any day over the fame
    Baby, sweet baby
