Hope In The Air Lyrics

Artist:laura marling

Songs Title:hope in the air

 

There is a man that I know

Seventeen years he never spoke

Guess he had nothing to say

 

He opened his mouth on judgement day

 

I listened with all of my might

I was scared by the look in his eyes

 

Like he'd already lost the fight

 

And there was no hope ever in sight

 

No hope in the air

 

No hope in the water

 

Not even for me your last serving daughter

 

Why fear death be scared of living

Oh hearts are small and ever thinning

 

There is no hope ever of winning

 

Why fear death be scared of living

 

I have seen men provoked

 

And I have seen lives revoked

And I looked at my life and I choked

From there no more ever I spoke

 

I can't give up that quick

My life is a candle and a wick

You can put it out but you can't break it down

In the end we are waiting to be lit

 

There's hope in the air

There's hope in the water

But sadly not me your last serving daughter

 

A friend is a friend forever

And a good one will never leave never

 

But you've never been south and what rolls off your mouth

You will never understand the ever

 

You speak minds handed down to you

 

By the lies handed down by your truth

 

And your angels that dance at your wail

 

Will mask your scrabbling youth

 

I forgave you your shortcomings

 

And ignored your childish behaviour

Laid a kiss on your head and before I left said

Stay away from fleeting favour

 

There's hope in the air

There's hope in the water

But sadly not me your last serving daughter

 

Pick up your rope lord sling it to me

If we are to battle I must not be weak

And give us your strength world and your food and your water

Oh I am your saviour your last serving daughter

 

There's hope in the air

There's hope in the water

But sadly not me your last serving daughter

 

There's hope in the air

There's hope in the water

But no hope for me your last serving daughter
