David Gray - Flesh lyrics

rate me

As the bell must strike the hour

As the west must stab the sun

So our hearts

Must heed the flow

Of deeper tides that run

Far beyond the bare indifference

That prosperity esteems

Where the spirit

Raves and dances

Through our very veins

At winters edge you found me

By the fields of wild gold

My hands still filled with ashes

From fires long cold

You pulled me from the wreckage

Of bitterness and blame

Flung open the page

And put some flesh on

The bones of my dreams

On the streets

The blossom snowing

And the drum is beating slow

And I hear you speak so clear

Well I'm slicing through the fear

Setting all the beacons

Blazingbaby oh!

It's staring out plainer than ever

Brighter than all the fools

Gold that gleams

It's simply now or never

Putting flesh on the bones

Of my dreams

Putting flesh on the bones

Of my dreams

Putting flesh on the bones

Of my dreams

And they can plunder

The cave of sorrows

They can strip the gallery bare

Try to build a fence

Around the visions

In our headschoke every spark

In a cloak of despair

But we got something

They can't stifle

With their price tags

And picture frames

Got a flower for every rifle

Putting flesh on the bones of my dreams
