Delta

  • Do not lie to us
    Don't hide your eyes from us
    I will take this softened cup
    I will sit upon your floor
    Tell your stories, tell all of your pain
    That's what I came here for
    And your children come and go as you eat

    What have I to find in our love, I am a waste
    My words are empty vessels, if I do nothing in this place
    And we can scream into the shadows
    And it's good that we can
    But walk with me, I think we'll find a way
    And walk with me, I think we'll find a way

    But I miss you at the Delta
    Where the rivers run into the sea
    And I'll miss you at the Delta
    What's behind, I can clearly see
    That beyond, that's beyond me

    When it feels like nothing else matters
    Will you put your arms around me?
    When it feels like nothing else matters
    Will you put your arms around me?
    And does your love prefer the others?
    And does your love just make you feel again?
    Does my love prefer the others?
    Does my love just make me feel good?

    When it's all just dust to dust
    And it's how it will be
    When it's all just nothing else
    That means nothing to me
    When it's all just dust to dust
    And how it will be
    When it's all just nothing else
    That means nothing to me

    Does my love prefer the others
    Or does my love just make me feel good
    Does my love prefer the others
    Or does my love just make me feel good

    When it feels like nothing else matters
    Will you put your arms around me?
    When it feels like nothing else matters
    Will you put your arms around me?
    And does your love prefer the others?
    Does my love, just make you feel good? Writer/s: Benjamin Walter David Lovett, Edward James Milton Dwane, Marcus Oliver Johnstone Mumford, Winston Aubrey Aladar Marshall
