The Man with the Axe 歌詞

Lyrics by:Ella Yelich O'Connor

Composed by:Ella Yelich O'Connor

If I had to break it down

 

I'd say it's the way you love to dance

Movin' the furniture when my back is turned

 

The flick of the lights and the world falls away

And your office job and your silver hair

 

But our shapes in the dark are the reason I've stayed

For all these years

 

I thought I was a genius but now I'm twenty-two

 

And it's startin' to feel like all I know how to do is

Put on a suit and take it away

 

With my fistful of tunes that it's painful to play

 

Fingernail worlds like favourite seashells

 

They fill up my nights and then they float away

 

I've got hundreds of gowns I've got paintings in frames

 

And a throat that fills with panic every festival day

 

Dutifully fallin' apart for the Princess of Norway

 

But you with your doll's lashes your infinite t-shirts

 

I should've known when your favourite record was the same as my father's

You'd take me down

 

I guess I'll always be this way

 

Swallowed up by the words and halfway to space

 

But there by the fire you offered your hand

 

And as I took it I loved you the boy with the plan

You felled me clean as a pine

 

The man with the axe and the look in his eyes

 

We've been through so many hard times

 

 

I'm writin' a love song for you baby
