Laura Marling – Alpha Shallows lyrics

He could fall and shake and weep
By his, holy are my feet
And hard with mention
The dear, they may not speak
We feel tight when there is tension
And our eyes could make us weep.

And his heart was full of fire
At the man he had become
And his soul was seldom higher
With the falsities of fun
Could embrace sweet desire
As in moments as they pass
But he's feel it ever more,
He saw it didn't last.

We'd walk Holland Avenue
And watch the rich as they consume
Their product made our hearts exhume
An emptiness unrivaled by
A hunger that I could control
He'd pray unto his god
That he might save their soul

But ahhh,
The gray in this city is too much to bear
The gray in this city is too much to bear
And I believe we are meant to be seen,
And not to be understood.

And I want to be held by those arms.
And I want to be held by those arms.

You'll work your thumbs till they're sore
And you'll work my heart till it's raw
And you'll call and you'll call
But you'll never be told
And I'll fall and I'll fall and I'll fall
And I'll fall and I'll fall and I'll fall

Ah-ah x5
We are basic life
We are basic life
Ah-ah x4
