Laura Marling – Captain And The Hourglass lyrics

You kick the blow,
Now you gotta kick the guy
You sat alone
Under billowing sky
If I feel God judging me,
Well I fell into the water,
Now I'm free.

My friends don't really get me,
Think I'm the only one
Well I sold my soul to Jesus
And since then I've had no fun
Behind every tree
Is a cutting machine
And a kite fallen from grace
Inside every man
Is a heart of sand
You can see it in his face.
He'll tick tick tick
Tick tick tick tick away.
Another second lost
With every fallen grain.
He'll tick tick tick
Tick tick tick tick away.
Another second lost
With every fallen grain.

The wind and I,
We speak the same,
But he don't hear so well.
You're gonna have
To curse him well
You're gonna have to yell.
The sky and I,
We've had our fights
And I'm coming down to rain,
If the rain come round
And it don't come out,
Then I'll never have
To speak again,
I can tick tick tick
Tick tick tick tick away.
Another second lost
With every fallen grain.
Can tick tick tick
Tick tick tick tick away.
Another second lost
With every fallen grain.

The captains got his boots on
And he's heading out the door,
Leaving his lady alone thinkin'
'He don't love me no more. '
He's done with all this bullshit,
He's going back to war,
If Heaven is as Heaven does then
This is Hell for sure...
And He'll tick tick tick
Tick tick tick tick away.
Another second lost
With every fallen grain.
He'll tick tick tick tick
Tick tick tick away.
Another second lost
With every fallen grain.

You kick the blow,
Now you gotta kick the guy
You sat alone
Under billowing sky
If I feel God judging me,
Well I fell into the water,
Now I'm free
