Word by word
She spoke to me
Hidden ‘neath a mess of bygone linen
She listens as to dry a thousand tongues
My love is thin and thinning
Some cherished flower
Flutters through
Gentle born beloved you
Kindness always
Kindness always

I hear the sound
The sound she’s left me
I stood her ground
No
They’ve swayed me

I hear the sound
The sound she’s left me
I stood her ground
I hear the sound
The sound she’s left me

Wrapped tight
Inside your shawl
We wander round this dingy hall
Softly spoken
Shaken tree
The ash grove we come to be
The blood run
The blood run away
From arm and leg to a warm heart
All our colors agree
In the dark

But no man lives upon that land
Far enough for us to see
I hear your voice, yeah
In the hum of this machine

I hear the sound
The sound you’ve left me
I stood her ground

I hear the sound
The sound she’s left me
