lyrics

Sorry was the sight of Erica’s demise
She held the cotton on the kite
Merry all the while and poetry her style
She brought the twinkle to the night

But it’s old rope, so let go
There are fields and farms to roam

As lantern light can wane, I watched you gently fade
And oh to harbour these remains
You took the warmth inside, the one thing I relied
And sat so still as I became

The ebb and flow of letting go
Of a life I need and know
The faint relief of turning cheek
Before new lesions show

It’s old rope so let go
There are fields and farms to roam
It’s old rope so let go
There are fields and farms to roam

So saddled to ride I’ll be, wherever the wind doth lead
And may she keep good company
As soon as the first bells sound, I’ll scatter you all around
Over the marshes to the Lea

The ebb and flow of letting go of a life we need and know
The faint relief of turning cheek before new lesions grow

You brought the twinkle to the night.
