Beth Orton – Skimming Stone lyrics

You been tryin' to find the line to define the strength in weak hands
Read the first page then guess the rest and don't always know what's
You been tryin' to swim up the sun's burning reflection
And tryin' to skim a boulder in the very same direction
Where it goes
No one knows
No one follows
Where it goes
No one knows
No one follows
I'll be a flame burning in the darkness and I will light what's in your
I'll be a flame in the dark but I can't light what's not in your heart
I can lie...I can lie...I can lie...I can lie...
You can can can lie...
