Patrick Wolf - Blackdown Lyrics

And I walked west Sussex sunlight
Up by dead man's pool
Where ma, mudlark and Lewes
Stared me down "you drunken fool"

Old teenage debts engulfed my chest
As I contemplate death
I put a challenge to its glamours
And all its loss and glory

Late afternoon breath
Taken deep into my luings
Thinking of the man I must become

My story has just begun
And I will be returning
To myself soon

I've been alone
For so many of
The great moments
in my life

Alone like too many
But at this moment in my life
I ask you

Father, father, anyway
I can help ye?
See I am only just growing
Much better to know thee

Thank you for the things
You've given to our family
Given your whole life
To your wife and my sister
And me

Now I look out north of Battle
Where our ancestors lie in grave
West to Brede where the blacksmith
Put root to our name

I get proud of my birthright
Think of those things
That I must leave
When I leave behind
The city
And the living
Finally...

Desire
Desire
Desire...

Desire, desire
Deep down inside of me
You are not the maker
Nor the master of me

Help me to better
Support my family
And better, better
Of a brother be

Desire, desire
Deep down inside of me
You are not the wrecker
Nor the ruler of me
Desire, desire deep
Down in me...

Yes I've been alone
For too many of

These great moments in my life

Alone like too many

But desire, desire, desire

You
are
not
the
maker
of
me
