Master Hunter

Album: Once I Was An Eagle (2013)
  • I am a master hunter
    I cured my skin, now nothing gets in
    Nothing not as hard as it tries

    You want a woman cause you want to be saved
    Well I'll tell you that I got a little lot on my plate
    Well if you want a woman who can call your name, it ain't me babe
    No, no, no, it ain't me babe

    I don't stare at water anymore,
    Water doesn't do what it did before
    It took me in into the edge of insane when I only meant to swim
    I nearly put a bullet in my brain when the rhythm took me in

    I am a master hunter

    You let men into your bed
    They don't know you well
    They can't get into my head
    They don't have a hope in hell

    See the thing is we are so alone
    There's nothing we can share
    You can get me on the telephone but you won't keep me there
    No, no, no, you won't keep me there

    Take me somewhere I can grow
    Give me something let me go
    Tell me something I don't know
    I, I have some news
    I have some news
    Is this what you think I do
    In life when I'm not being used
    You're not sad, you look for the blues
    You're not sad, you look for the blues
    I have some news
    Wrestling the rope from darkness is no fucking life that I would choose

    I am a master hunter
    I cured my skin, now nothing gets in
    Nothing not as hard as it tries

    I am a master, I am a master
    I am a master hunter Writer/s: LAURA BEATRICE MARLING
