lyrics

Mare

When I was a soldier
I painted my saddle bright
And though I was gored and beaten
My enemies I’d not strike

Goodnight, my daughter
I’ll rest ye well in my mind
And with veils of muslin white
I’ll bless you a saint’s requite

And now I’m a patron
A matron of heathen tithes
I’ll spare you my tales of war
Your lessons are in my eyes

I falter inside
with tender stones painted white
they roll and they tumble
Down rumbling to my soul

You’ll find that I’m nowhere
Shouting out to the world
With eyes that are so wide
Baring you the war inside

Goodnight, my soul wife
Hang on for your dear life
I’ll not go far
Imagine me on the sofa

To fall and go on
One last time I wish I might
But rising is for the young
I fall but for one last time
