  • There lies a man of my heart
    A fine and complete work of art
    Here, I his woman, his home, and his heart
    And proud to be playing that part
    And proud to be playing that part

    Rest in the bed of my bones
    All that I have is a home
    And all you can do is promise me bold
    That you won't let me grow dark or cold
    As long as we both shall live

    The sirens come and shall feel your call
    As a sound as I believe in you

    The first bit's the hardest I'm sure
    Where our shadows come to the shore
    Know that it's you and I till the end
    And all I want from life is to hold your hand

    All that I have are these bones
    And all that I want is a home
    And all you can do is promise me bold
    That you won't let me grow dark or cold
    As long as we both shall live

    The sirens come, they always will
    But the dart between my heart and his
    Is as good as a diamond chain

    Rest in the bed of my bones
    All that I want is a home
    And all you can do is promise me bold
    That you won't let me grow dark or cold
    As long as we both shall live Writer/s: LAURA BEATRICE MARLING
