Devil's Spoke

Album: I Speak Because I Can (2010)
Charted: 97
  • I might be a part of this
    Ripple on water from a lonesome drip
    A fallen tree that witness me
    I'm alone, him and me

    And then life itself can not aspire
    To have someone be so admired
    I threw creation to my king
    With the silence broken by a whispered wind

    All of this can be broken
    All of this can be broken
    Hold your devil by his spoke and spin him to the ground

    And root to root and tip to tip
    I look at him my country gip
    Let it up I own his fears
    But someone brought you close to tears

    Many trains and many miles
    Like you to me on this sunny isle
    And what of which you wish to speak
    Have you come here to rescue me?

    All of this can be broken
    All of this can be broken
    Hold your devil by his spoke and spin him to the ground

    But the love of your life
    Lives but lies no more
    And where she lay a flower grows

    The arms are fed and the babes have wed
    And the backs have bled, keeping her in tow

    But I am your keeper
    And I hold your face away from light
    I am yours till they come
    I am yours till they come

    Eye to eye
    Nose to nose
    Ripping off each other's clothes
    In a most peculiar way

    Eye to eye
    Nose to nose
    Ripping off each other's clothes
    In a most peculiar way Writer/s: LAURA BEATRICE MARLING
