lyrics

Honest Blood

In the calm quiet moments of the morning/
gulls of white float on by.
Miles of deep below the surface/
there’s a chance I could die.

I’m too lucky to write of sorrow/
feels like lies beneath my pen.
Poorly pronounced by my wry lips/
I have never told of dread.

Calmly heal the proctor/
who has taken me to bed.
Tell him I have never suffered/
and can’t heal with words unsaid.

Can your brother bring you to me/
does his knife draw honest blood?
Will he love his daughter truly/
and sleep well when day is done?

Don’t you know that I am fragile/
cut my teeth on your stained skin.
‘Neath the water warm and ruly/
as I watched the spring begin.

I’m your lover and your teacher/
save my soul beseech your mind.
Find the treasures in the forest/
keep them safe, keep them blind.

Can your mother tell me truly/
does she spin an honest tale?
Will your love for her continue/
and not sleep beneath the veil?

Calmly heal the proctor/
who has taken me to bed.
Tell him I have never suffered/
and can’t heal with words unsaid.
