I'm Done with the World (& It's Done with Me)

Album: Everything Not Saved Will Be Lost – Part 1 (2019)
  • The fox is dead in the garden
    The hedges are on fire in the country lanes
    And all I wanna do is get out of the rain
    An autumn day, an autumn day

    My daughter's asleep in the garden
    The leaves are on fire in the country lanes
    And all I wanna do is get out of the rain
    An autumn day, an autumn day

    I'm done with the world and it's done with me
    All I wanna do is get up and leave
    Time falls into the garden
    I'm on my kneesWriter/s: Edwin Thomas Congreave, Jack William Bevan, James Andrew Smith, Yannis Barnabas Emanuel Philippakis
