P.J. Harvey – The Bay lyrics

A dead man came calling my name and in need
Said Betty you're my girl
The strongest I've seen

But oh my heart is heading to break
They say God forgives
But I can't learn the same

Said Betty she's fine
And Betty she's tall
And Betty makes love
Like no woman at all
But oh my heart is heading to break
They say God forgives
But I can't learn the same

So I gave him my time
And I gave him my peace
And I gave him my heart
Gave it to keep

But oh my eyes making fools out of me
They say love is blindness
I can no longer see

Now I've no more to give
And I've no more to say
And the stars shine less bright now
Over this dead man's bay

But oh my heart is heading to break
They say God forgives
Is this love in the grave
They say God forgives
Is this love in the grave
They say God forgives
Is this love in the grave
