  • God's work is plans
    I stand here with a man that talked to me so candidly
    More than you need to.

    My lips once roosed
    I feel again the blues of longing, ever longing, to be confused

    He wrote me a letter
    Saying he would love me better
    When my poor sons begetter the rules

    Spoke of love like hunger
    He at once was younger, ever younger, in my hunger for a muse

    Finest man that I've seen ever since my eyes have been
    But his honesty did gleam me blind

    Keep those thoughts from sight
    Follow me into the night
    And you can call on me when you need the light

    Don't you be scared of me
    I'm nothing but the beast
    And I'll call on you when I need to feast

    You know what I need
    Why won't you giveth me?
    Must I fall down at your feet and plead? Writer/s: LAURA BEATRICE MARLING
