What He Wrote Lyrics

Forgive me Hera I cannot stay

He cut out my tongue there is nothing to say

Love me oh Lord he threw me away

He laughed at my sins in his arms I must stay

He wrote: 'I'm broke please send for me '

 

But I'm broke in two and spoken for do not tempt me

Her skin is white and I'm light as the sun

So holy light shines on the things you have done

 

So I asked him how he became this man

How did he learn to hold fruit in his hands

And where is the lamb that gave you your name

He had to leave though I begged him to stay

 

Left me alone when I needed the light

Fell to my knees and I wept for my life

 

If he had of stayed you might understand

If he had of stayed you never would have taken my hand

 

He wrote: 'I'm low please send for me '

 

But I'm broke in two and spoken for do not tempt me

 

And where is the lamb that gave you your name

 

He had to leave though I begged him to stay

 

Begged him to stay in my cold wooden grip

Begged him to stay by the light of this ship

Me fighting him fighting life fighting dawn

And the waves came and stole him and took him to war

 

He wrote: 'I'm broke please send for me '

 

But I'm broke in two and spoken for do not tempt me

 

Forgive me Hera I cannot stay

He cut out my tongue there is nothing to say

Love me oh Lord he threw me away

 

He laughed at my sins in his arms I must stay

 

We write that's alright I miss his smell

 

We speak when spoken to that suits us well

 

That suits us well

 

That suits me well
