a sail lyrics – lisa hannigan

“a sail”

it’s long gone that i carry on from december
it is no matter, if you remember
mold, paper, bad wine, and too much bedside whiskey
i will roll my heart up
i will roll my heart up in my sleeve

now it is your line
i know that i wrote it
and if you tell a lie
well, no one will notice
and of you and i
well, i was the loudest
while you stayed quiet
we were surrounded

it’s long gone that i carry on from the winter
i asked you upstairs
until we tangled in my hair
you were never one for chronic chattering
your heart beat pale
while i flew my colors
i flew my colors like a sail

now it is your line
i know that i wrote it
and if you tell a lie
well, no one will notice
and of you and i
well, i was the loudest
while you stayed quiet
we were surrounded

i will roll my heart up
i will roll my heart up
i will roll my heart up
i will roll my heart up
