lyrics

Jagged harp down in East Row
Tear me away from my bones
Brick and cheek along West Road
Carve me out of this hole

It’s a miracle we’re here at all
It’s a wonder that you’re gone

Marble lady crossing Deacon Street
Pedalling your limbs as you flow
Roll the washing down where the rivers meet
To make this day daisy glow
You heave and ho, you heave and ho with fever
Where my heart sat down
They steal you though, they steal you though the leavers
Weaving the lanes out of town

It’s a miracle we’re here at all
It’s a wonder that you’re gone

Twisted waltz down in the echo hall
Toes pitter pattering the tiles
Play a dance to slide the bodies to
Gliding them home easy style
Under oaks, boughs and gallows they lie
In the arms of the Lily lake they lie
Over cobble stones and barrows they lie, they lie

It’s a miracle we’re here at all
It’s a wonder that you’re gone
It’s a miracle we’re here at all
And it’s a wonder that you’re gone.
