Shawn Colvin – Seven Times The Charm lyrics

The first rose to rise up in the ruins of the flood
You brought me down like a hawk to your glove
But a poor girl is made out of sorrow and blood
Some hearts survive but mine isn't one

And we go once down the aisle
Twice 'round the stars
You had all the persuasion of a snake on my arm
And seven times the charm

My dreams grew like feathers and fell all at once
Much too Heavy but never enough
To lay down Beside you and cover you up
Only God Should Deserve so much love

We go once down the aisle
Twice 'round the stars
You had all the gleam of the jewels on my arm
And seven times the charm

The same way the earth moves under you like it does
And swallows the light of the sun
I didn't feel you turning didn't know what it was
But the rains had already begun

I never once saw you smile
As I pulled you into my arms
You had none of the kindness and all of the harm
And seven times the charm
