glass lyrics – bat for lashes

“gl*ss”

i will rise now
and go about the city
in the street’s
broadways i seek
him whom my soul loveth

went over the sea
what did i find?
a thousand crystal towers
a hundred emerald cities

and the hand of the watchman
in the night sky
points to my beloved
a knight in crystal armour

and i tried to hold him
i tried for the creed
i’ll make a suit of colours
to stop the blinding mirrors

saw a cape of red and gold
stifle up the being
with the perfect armour
with a perfect dream

to be made of gl*ss
when two suns are shining
the battle becomes blinding
to be made of gl*ss
but we ride tonight, tonight, tonight, we ride

and with two suns spinning
at two different speeds
was born a hot white diamond
burning through the rainbow

flames fell into orbit
to hold eternally
two heavenly spirits
that just wouldn’t seem

to be made of gl*ss
when two suns are shining
the battle becomes blinding
to be made of gl*ss
but we ride tonight, tonight, tonight, we ride

hey, oh
hey, oh oh oh
hey, oh
hey, oh oh oh
hey, oh
hey oh oh oh
