Alpha Shallows Lyrics

Alpha Shallows - Laura Marling

He could fall and she could weep

But as holy are her feet and hard with mention

But dear they may not speak

We fell tight when there is tension and their eyes could make us weak

 

And his heart was full of fire at the man he had become

And his soul was seldom higher with the falsities of fun

He could embrace sweet desire as in moments as they pass

But he feared it ever more when he saw it didn't last

 

We walk up Holland avenue

And watch the rich as they consume

Their product made our hearts exude emptiness unrivalled by

 

The hunger that I could control

And he'd pray up to his God that he might save his soul

 

But the grey in this city is too much to bear

 

The grey in this city is too much to bear

And I believe you are meant to be seen but not to be understood

 

And I want to be held those eyes

I want to be held those eyes

 

You'll work your thumbs till they're sore

And you'll work my heart till it's raw

And you'll call and you'll call but you'll never be told

And I'll fall and I'll fall and I'll fall

And I'll fall and I'll fall and I'll fall

 

We are basic lies

 

 

We are basic lies
