Breathe

Album: Once I Was An Eagle (2013)
  • You came here to tell me something
    I already know
    The dark before the dawn
    Is the darkest I can go
    The calm before the storm
    Is what leaves me here to breathe
    So breathe

    Us of constant banging
    Throwing fists against the wall
    Screaming at the earth for what
    It's done to one and all
    I came here to tell you something
    You already know
    Just breathe
    Breathe

    How cruel I am to you
    Cruel things I do
    How cruel you were to me
    How cruel time can be
    I wrote you a book
    But I left it out in the rain
    Left it there to dry
    But it got rained on once again
    Us of constant banging
    Throwing fists against the wall
    Breathe
    Breathe

    How cruel you are to me
    How cruel time can be
    How cruel I was to you
    How cruel the things I do

    When you wake you'll know I'm gone
    And where I'm going there's no one
    So don't follow me
    Whatever you may hear or see
    Don't follow me
    Whatever you may hear or see

    When you wake you'll know I'm gone
    And where I'm going there's no one
    So don't follow me
    Whatever you may hear or see
    Don't follow me
    Whatever you may hear or see Writer/s: Laura Marling
