  • I'm drawn to the blood
    The flight of a one-winged dove
    How? How did this happen?
    How? How did this happen?

    The strength of his arm
    My lover caught me off guard
    How? Head of a rabbit
    How? Head of a rabbit

    For my prayer has always been love
    What did I do to deserve this?

    With blood on my sleeve
    Delilah, avenge my grief
    How? God of Elijah
    How? God of Elijah

    As fire to the sun
    Tell me what I have done
    How? Heart of a dragon
    How? Heart of a dragon

    For my prayer has always been love
    What did I do to deserve this now?
    How did this happen? Writer/s: Sufjan Stevens
    Publisher: BMG Rights Management
