Karine Polwart – Waterlily lyrics

Caught between the air and the windless deep (exit bass)
You float like a lily flower.
And you look just like you fell to earth to sleep
And you're waiting for your waking hour.

CHORUS
And I swear to God I saw an angel hand attend you
But that was just the dancing of the light.
No mortal or immortal did deliver or defend you.
All hands have forsaken you tonight.

Are you dreaming of a lover who will carry you away
And keep you from the crying of the crowd?
No cradle in the rushes, you are broken like the day,
With darkness all around you like a shroud.

CHORUS

When they finally surrounded you, did any of them face you?
Did you curse the silent stars above?
Those cruel arms abandoned you for water to embrace you,
Won't you lay your head my waterlily love

CHORUS

Caught between the air and the windless deep
You float like a lily flower
And you look just like you fell to earth to sleep
And you're waiting for your waking hour
And you're waiting for your waking hour
