Neptune

Album: Everything Not Saved Will Be Lost - Part 2 (2019)
  • Hey
    Now it's time to go
    From the white wards of England
    The crows line the rivers and roads
    I wanna walk where I know
    Through the olive groves
    The sky that knows my name
    It gave me away
    The magnolia moon
    Like an eggshell, a white bell
    To lighten my cold room
    So let me sleep where I live
    With a murder of crows
    That live in the boughs of my brain

    See me when I float like a dove
    The skies above are lined with trees
    I'm on my knees, I'm singing, please
    Come and take me away

    Time brings low all good things
    When you open your eyes
    When you open your eyes
    Now in the vastness of pines
    Where my ghost lies in loose-limbed array
    I pass the time
    Go upload my heart
    To the fatal shore, forevermore it spins here
    'Hind closed doors
    Now it's time to go
    Through the fields of chrome
    The rusted homes abandoned
    Remains of the day
    So come row me away
    On black rivers and rainbows
    To Neptune
    Where I can stay

    See me when I float like a dove
    The skies above are lined with trees
    I'm on my knees, begging please
    Come and take me away
    Come take me away
    Come take me away

    Time brings low the best things
    When you open your eyes
    When you open your eyes
    Time brings low all good things
    When we open our eyes
    When we open our eyes

    Oh, I've waited so long
    On the snow shores of England
    To sing my last song
    So come row me away
    On black rivers and rainbows
    To Neptune
    Where I can stay

    See me when I float like a dove
    The skies above are lined with trees
    I'm on my knees, begging please
    Come and take me away
    Come take me away
    Come take me away Writer/s: Edwin Thomas Congreave, Jack William Bevan, James Andrew Smith, Yannis Barnabas Emanuel Philippakis
