Islands – To A Bond lyrics

To a bond underneath
Bridge between two trees
Both blowing leaves into that great ravine
You came swimming with me

I like how you swim
You do it with ease, you do it with ease
Then an oar came down
Struck that water, bad luck struck us down

Bruised, removed you, brought you to shore
Before they came for you
Then I watched you disappear
Dripping bloodstained footsteps smear

Don't let the bleeding stop
It's everything you've got
In a body undergoing night surgery
Enemy wants to cut into me

I escaped in the nick of time
Centipede floats by on a leaf
I like how it floats
It does it with ease, it does it with ease

Then I saw you on the ledge
Talked you down, talked your ear off then
We walked around till you had to leave
To catch a train at 10

And gone around the bend
But bound like Chinese feet
Don't go unraveling, traveling into the blue
Returned to look for you

Couldn't say goodbye
The porch light in my heart
Had gone out, had gone out in the dark
Had gone out in the dark
Had gone out in the dark

Had gone out in the dark like flies
Had gone out in the dark like flies
Had gone out in the dark like, ooh
