esmerelda lyrics – ben howard

oh, blinded now i see that i
could not hold you
my orange tree left in the darkened
room for three of us to share.

oh maybe you were free before my
blackened wind covered you
i took the sing from your song
i made a bed,
where you don’t belong.

oh pull me, she fell beneath the wheels to help me up.
black sea, i failed to be the light you found in love.
oh pull me, she fell beneath the wheels to help me up.
black sea, the monster killed the melody you loved.

now i’m going places on my own.

blinded now i see the death
moves amongst us,
and with such ease arrived
to surround us.
these silent beasts are hard to bear.

lonely, oh no not me
i have a grave to dig.
fast moving feet, you gave me light
where it once was gone
i made a bed,
where you don’t belong.

oh pull me, she fell beneath the wheels to help me up.
black sea, i failed to be the light you found in love.
oh pull me, she fell beneath the wheels to help me up.
black sea, the monster killed the melody you loved.

now i’m going places on my own.
