lyrics

Twas here it overturned
Upon the cold slate, bracken and the burn
And the horses took the reins too soon
And left the carriage wheels whirring at the moon

And the bells were in my ears like a Sunday call
To put my best-dressed foot towards the Lord
And the bells were in my brain with a solemn creed
To keep all my senses from relief
Until the darkness let me in

I awoke to a man at my chest
Who whispered 'Knives, guns and bullets are best'
And then he made a stab in the dark
Well there's nothing as soft as a heart

And the reason that I screamed 'til near insane -
I wanted to see my mother's face again
And the reason that I kissed his face above -
Every willing answer should be for love

Every willing answer should be for love
Every willing answer should be for love
