what i wouldn’t do lyrics – a fine frenzy

a fine frenzy lyrics

“what i wouldn’t do”

if we were children i would bake you a mud pie
warm and brown beneath the sun
never learned to climb a tree but i would try
just to show you what i’d done

oh what i wouldn’t do
if i had you, babe, i had you
oh what i wouldn’t do
if i had you, babe

if i were old, my dearest, you would be older
but i would crawl upon your lap
wrap a blanket round our frail little shoulders
and i’d die happily like that

oh what i wouldn’t do
if i had you, babe, i had you
oh what i wouldn’t do
if i had you, babe, if i had you

so lace your hands round the small of my back and i will kiss you like a king
i will be your bride, i’ll keep you warm at night
i will sing, i will sing

it was now and we were both in the same place
didn’t know how to say the words
with my heart ticking like a bomb in a birdcage
i left before someone got hurt

’cause it was what i wouldn’t do
if i had you, babe, i had you
it was what i wouldn’t do
when i had you, babe, when i had you
