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
