Ester

We can talk, we can walk,
we can sleep in the rain,
We can fight, we can scream,
we could cure all this pain but for what?
For you to walk away like before.
I'll set fire to the hills and I'll build my own gun,
I'll hold on to the thought
That were bigger than the sun and the moon,
And the stars that are in your eyes,
Hold me down.


So sell me a river that I can swim up,
Please tell me a story that I can live in,
Over and over again.


I could fall, I could stall, I could give up the dream,
I can't breathe I can't feel it's not as easy as it seems,
To lay down, let the waves wash me ashore,
Make me clean.


So sell me a river that I can swim up,
Whilst holding your life in my hands,
Feeling my own feet dragging me down,
I just hope I can save myself now,
Please tell me a story that I can live in,
Live in over and over again.


So sell me a river that I can swim up,
I keep feeling my own hands dragging me out,
I believe I can save myself now,
Please tell me a story that I can live in,
Live in over and over again,
Over and over again.
So sell me a story that I can live in,
live in over and over again.

 

Woods

Ice breaks, it’s like giants behind me
Whispers in their steps and lies on their backs
Walking through my forest, cutting down the trees
Hoping that this time no one will see

Holding in my breath, praying on my knees
Trying to make a fire, so my soul don’t freeze
Hoping for a sign, waiting for a savior
That’ll say “come here boy, I think I can save you”

The wind is in my face, bringing out the tears
Hoping that we’ll float, forgetting all our fears
They’re trying to make it better, trying to make it right
Even though the view is nice, we’ll be paying for some time

Holding in my breath, praying on my knees
Trying to make a fire, so my soul don’t freeze
Hoping for a sign, waiting for a savior
That’ll say “come here boy, I think I can save you”

I know I’ve done some bad things, I can never take it back
But if I can get forgiveness it will put me back on track

Holding in my breath, praying on my knees
Trying to make a fire, so my soul don’t freeze
Hoping for a sign, hoping for a savior
That’ll say “come here boy, I think I can save you”


Saint

You were my saviour, you were my grace
There’s only one name, to that beautiful face
The devil strikes quickly, the devil takes it all
When you’re around, I don’t care if I fall

Cos I’ll be your man, in shining armour
I’ll be your soul to the very last day
And I’ll hold on, with every last finger
You won’t slip away

The suns shining down, the rivers running low
If only we’ll make it, I know that we’ll grow
So please just be patient, I’ll get there one day
To be the man you want, who’ll never walk away

Cos I’ll be your man, in shining armour
I’ll be your soul to the very last day
And I’ll hold on, with every last finger
You won’t slip away

Cos I’ll be your man, in shining armour
I’ll be your soul to the very last day
And I’ll hold on, with every last finger
You won’t slip away


Morning Light

Sleep now, honey won’t you sleep now?
Dream away your heart, dream away your start
Breathe now, in and out just breathe now
It’s alright to just hold your head and cry

Cos I’ll be here till the morning light
The waves won’t sink my raft without a fight
I’m wet and I’m cold, I feel hungry and old
I hope we see the morning light

Think about the way we used to sneak around
I’ll hold on to you by the waterside
We’ve grown old now, sitting on our thrones
It’s alright to not dream of me at night

Cos I’ll be here till the morning light
The waves won’t sink my raft without a fight
I’m tired and I’m cold, I feel hopeless and bold
I hope we see the sun’s new light

But hold me down, I don’t wanna hear this now
That I’m not the man that you want around
I’d hold on to you till the morning light

I said I’d be here till the morning light
I’m afraid I’ve been beaten by the fight
I’ve given up given in, I feel fragile and thing

I guess, we won’t see the morning light
I guess, we won’t see the morning light
I guess, we won’t see the morning light
I guess, we won’t see the morning light
