White Chalk Lyrics

White chalk hills are all I've known

White chalk hills will rot my bones


White chalk sticking to my shoes

White chalk playing as a child with you


White chalk sat against time


White chalk cutting down the sea line


I know Mary's by the surf


On a path cut 1500 years ago


And I know these chalk hills will rot my bones


Dorset's cliffs meet at the sea


Where I walked

(Our unborn child in me)

White chalk

(Poor scattered land)

Scratch my palms

There's blood on my hands
