Bonnie Prince Billy – Blood Embrace lyrics

Oh God, would I give her up to him
If she told me he was better
And that I didn't have the chance?
That he [did?] to impress her?

Does she test me? Does she know
That I would sooner turn and go
Than fight another, if that is what she have me do?

/ instrumental - electric guitar /

And would she stop and hold me near
If she could see the future here?
Would hold me if she held me to her too?

I would not fight with hands or words
Another man - no, that's absurd
Or would I end what victory betray me

/ instrumental - electric guitar /

Or is that what she's waiting on?
A-pounding down one standing man
To kiss her in a blood embrace of victory
To kiss her in a blood embrace of victory
To kiss her in a blood embrace of victory
(To kiss her in a blood embrace of victory
To kiss her in a blood embrace of victory)

[Oh/Or] would I give her up at all
Because I know it could not be better
To live without what she provides
When we're alone and I undress her

Does she test me? Does she know
That I would never turn and go
But fight another, if that's what she have me do?

Spoken [film dialogue] :
[Woman] Charlie... I've, uh... I've been with another man.
Aren't you gonna say anything? You're just gonna sit there?
Oh Charlie, I didn't know when you were coming back
[or if you ever would.
I tell you, the men around here don't respect anything;
[if I told you all the guys that called me up...
And then Cliff... He didn't make a pass at me.
I mean he didn't even... Do it at all, Charlie.
[I knew what he wanted, but...
He never did anything about it.
And then it just seemed like the two of us just had to.
[Charlie] I don't think I'm up for any more of this.
Why don't you go to bed?
I'll work this all out. [Woman] What are you gonna do?
[Charlie] I'm just gonna sit here.

[Oh/Or] is that what she's waiting on?
A-pounding down one standing man
To kiss her in a blood embrace of victory
To kiss her in a blood embrace of victory
To kiss her in a blood embrace of victory
(To kiss her in a blood embrace of victory)
