The Decemberists - The Bachelor And The Bride Lyrics

Font:      
Align:    
  • There's a wrinkle in the water
  • where we laid our first daughter
  • And I think the wind blows so sweetly there
  • Over there
  • And the windows and the cinders
  • And the willows in the timbers
  • The infernal rattling of the rain
  • still remains
  • "But I" said the bachelor to the bride
  • "Am not waiting for tonight.
  • No, I will box your ears
  • and leave you here stripped bare."
  • Hear the corncrakes and the deerhooves
  • And the sleet rain on the slate roof
  • A medallion locked inside her hand
  • in her hand
  • And his fingers are they telling
  • of the barren of her belly
  • And his callouses cure her furrowed brow
  • even now
  • "But I," said the bachelor to the bride
  • "am not waiting for tonight.
  • No, I will box your ears
  • and leave you here stripped bare."
  • "But I," said the bachelor to the bride
  • "am not waiting for tonight.
  • No, I will box your ears
  • and take your tears
  • and leave you, leave you here
  • stripped bare."
