The Stone Coyotes

On the Riverbank

The Stone Coyotes
B. Keith


I remember nights
When I'd rush to meet you
By the light of the moon
Hangin' down low
You'd push back my hair
And softly whisper
"Love's made in Heaven
Now don't you know?"

On the riverbank
Where the water splashes
We swore our love
Would never die
But the fire
Burned down to ashes
The devil smiles
And the angels cry

We threw stones
In the bright blue water
Like lovers' lies
They leave no trace
Your eyes are cold
Under the streetlight
And all our dreams
Are laid to waste
