lyrics

Drawn by the magic of those books in your cabinet,
I fell into this habit and into your arms.
I was young and yearning—
Not a child but still learning,
Unafraid of the hurting we knew might come.
Ooh...

You were well respected for your fresh perspectives,
For your recollections of intricate things.
So we vowed we'd be careful,
And you swore you'd be gentle
Until, "Yes darling, yes" was all I could say.

When you asked, "Heloise, Heloise
Meet me in the churchyard.
Heloise, Heloise my love."

Once you promised you could keep me honest,
As if our bond weren't stronger than all their old laws.
But I said, "Damn what's proper.
Pin me down on that altar.
Wreck my world if you've gotta.
Just tell me I'm yours.

And whisper, 'Heloise,'" Heloise
Echoes through the churchyard.
"Heloise, Heloise my love."
Yeah, you said, "Heloise, Heloise,
Meet me in the churchyard.
Heloise, Heloise my love."

Oh, the Christians shamed us and my father blamed us,
But all the love we made was worth every ounce of pain.

Drawn by the beauty of these halls where you knew me;
Though you're long lost to me, I have no regrets.
And when my life is over, I'll still be pining for you.
May they lay my bones down on you
And never forget

When you asked, "Heloise, Heloise
Meet me in the churchyard.
Heloise, Heloise my love."

Yeah, you said, "Heloise, Heloise
Meet me in the churchyard.
Heloise, Heloise my love."

You whispered, "Heloise, Heloise,
Meet me in the churchyard.
Heloise, Heloise my love."
