His love is like a marching band, never to return
His heart is slowly rotting out, flesh too cold to burn
—Oh mercy (via the-lake-district)
—Let Me Go
Oh Mercy - Let Me Go
"Speaking on your behalf
Breathing on your sister’s back
Graze my hands on a promise made
I lick my wounds
I told you you would have your way
Spiders crawling on my face
Bite my lips and I’ll bite yours
I don’t want your love, let me go
I can’t have you holding my hand, let me go
I’m a single man, don’t fuck all my plans
Upside down or back to front
Still alive don’t take your time
Fell asleep as you took yours
Now I won’t mind
The gloss it melts right off the chest
I read the book, didn’t make no sense
Don’t know, blues still ruining me
Just build a bridge, let me go.
No, I can’t have you holding my hand, let me go.
I’m a single man, don’t fuck all my plans.
Plenty people passing and don’t get me down
Should I call you when I’m round when I’m on this side of town
There was a room full of strangers that I can’t know
Damn I’m nervous, pretty lady, don’t let me go…”
When all is said and done,
I don’t want you around.
Take me out to sea,
Throw me overboard,
Let the birds pick my brains,
Let my bones wash to shore.
No I can’t have you holding my hand, let me go
I’m a single man, don’t fuck all my plans, let me go.
how do you smile and say goodbye
with a bag on your back and not a tear in your eye?
I felt what was wrong but I couldn’t put it right (damn)
I’m on the road to a nowhere land.
Now I’m in limbo babe
At least for another day.
lay everything on me - oh mercy
gotta get brave and start digging my own grave, still looking for that deep, deep deep heat.
