Tune-yards – Time Of Dark lyrics

I know you're carrying me under a blanket of coal
I feel you carrying me under a blanket of coal

Living in the time of dark
And I don't dare to look very far
Young man
She's just a whisper
Step too loud, the sound of the ground
Will just eclipse her

I leave all my doubts behind
(See through me)
I'll give up my sight
I'll tear it out so I can see the signs
My steps are small
(See through me)
Walking blind
Spinning to the clouds
Hoping I don't choke on all the truth that they bring

[Chorus:]
See me over the mountain
I know you're carrying me under a blanket of coal
See me over the mountain, yeah
I know you're carrying me under a blanket of coal
If you see me to the darkest time
There'll never be a mountain that I cannot climb
See me over the mountain
I know you're carrying me under a blanket of coal

See right through me to the sky
Down is up and up is down
A crumble climbing high
I've met you twice before
When you put breath in my lungs when my own kin had me gagged
When you taught me to breathe underwater
When I had myself drowned

So don't cry
It's nothing
(See through me)
Even in silence
There are voices who will sing
(See through me)
But oh little child
Understand a single thing
Your music's in your pocket
With the power you can even imagine
It will bring

[Chorus:]
See me over the mountain
I know you're carrying me under a blanket of coal
Won't you see me over this mountain
I feel you carrying me under a blanket of coal
If you see me to the darkest time
There'll never be a mountain I'm not willing to climb
See me over the mountain
I know you're carrying me under a blanket of coal

Hey hey hey, hey-o
(Hey hey hey, hey-o...)

See through me
See me over this mountain, yeah

Living in the time of dark
And I don't dare to look very far
