daphne lyrics – bat for lashes

12, 11, 10, 9
outside my house i’ve built a shrine
8, 7, 6, 5
but i have dreamt he’s still alive
4, 3, 2, 1
in the lantern light his voice is sung

row row row row
the time is right for us to go

burned the night in all her darkness
daphne froze in her white night gown
cards have built around her body
the sea is calling me down
the sea is calling me down

bloomed the night in all her darkness
daphne froze on the gr*ss abyss
years of tears had salt her body
and she cried nevermore
and she cried nevermore

1, 2, 3, 4
for you, my love, i’ll wait no more
5, 6, 7, 8
lay your kisses to rest at the garden gate
9, 10, 11, 12
because i’ve got to save myself

row row row row
the time is right for you to go
