lyrics

my eight legs grow tired
of pulling this thread
I am strong, but terrified
that I was wrong

you warned me of wind
said a storm would do me in
I just kept on pulling and pulling and pulling
on my silk

you sat there as I kept spinning
for all those years
took my hand, we danced between the dew drops
on every strand

though you warned me of wind
said a storm would do us in
there we were just pulling and pulling and pulling
on my silk

a storm came
with its driving rain
the web fell, it fell

my eight legs grow tired
of pulling this thread
still I pull, and though you've gone
its all I know

there may still be wind
and a storm might do me in
I have to keep on pulling and pulling and pulling
on my silk
