lyrics

Beekeeper, beekeeper, I don't understand.
Don't keep your secrets inside your sweet hand.
What do you do when all the bees start to swarm?

Will they listen to kindness, will they listen to me?
Will they fly, will they fly, will they fly up a tree?
What can I do to bring them back to me?

Is it a wave of your hand, or something?
Is it a wave of your hand, or something?

My burden is sweet, my burden is strong.
My burden is turning and my burden is long.
My burden is confusion and it's knocking the wind out of me.

Beekeeper, beekeeper, I try to be soft.
I try to be easy and not scare them off,
but sometimes no magic will bring them back to me.

Is it a wave of your hand, or something?
Is it a wave of your hand, or something?

Is it a wave of your hand, or something?
Is it a wave of your hand, or something?
