Poison Apples Lyrics

by Joan Osborne

Your memory comes back to me
To strangle me with its sweet taste
See God would never be so cruel
To make me like without your face

Now that I have made you crawl
And it does you good to see me fall
Like poison apples from the tree
As heavy as a honey bee

Hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah
I gave you away so easily
It makes me wonder why?

Moving through you every night
The lovely girls in dresses tight
The angels dancing on a pin
The people we are downing in

Like a needle going in
Into the shiny city skin
Oh I recall the moment when
You ruined me for other men

Hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah
I gave you away so easily
It makes me wonder why?
I don't know why? I don't know why?

Hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah
I gave you away so easily
It makes me wonder why?

If I die before you do
Believe me I'll be haunting you
I'll come upon you while you sleep
To drown you in a kiss so deep
