Alpha Shallows (Demo) Lyrics

Alpha Shallows (Demo) - Laura Marling

Written by:Laura Beatrice 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

 

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 their 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 by those eyes

 

I want to be held by 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

 

It's going to be pretty tough when you leave

 

You'll help to take a little part of me

 

To make sure you don't treat yourself mean

 

And I want to see all that you'll see

 

And we are basic lies

 

 

And we are basic lies
