whisper grass lyrics – elbow

a frieze of you is with me now
a frieze of you with knitted brow
a frieze of you asking how i could

if you’re inclined, to prove myself
if you’re inclined, to a whisper gr*ss sh*ll
with god above and not much else

the air gets thin i
came down, gave in i
the air gets thin i
came down, gave in i

the game i’m in, i win and lose
the simple love, you gave to me
and quiet days, a frieze of you

the air gets thin i
came down, gave in i
the air gets thin i
came down, gave in i

the air gets thin i
came down, gave in i
the air gets thin
came down, gave in

granite cold detached and granite cold i stood
came down, gave in
