lyrics

i know you don’t believe this
but i can be your friend
i remember you well, you will never fall
so don’t you pack your bags now
leaving won’t right these wrongs

come now with your heart in your throat
come to me with your heart in your throat
come now with your heart in your throat once more

i’ve known dying,
it ain‘t much of a way of living
and i’ve known longing
makes heartbreak out of waiting
got a gunpowder heart
fire in my cheek
still learning how to live with this heat

come now with your heart in your throat
come to me with your heart in your throat
come now with your heart in your throat once more
once more, baby please once more, just once more

you’ve planted edelweiss on the south shore snow
there’s blankets all winter
for what your hands worked to grow
your mother was crushed by air raids
and a rush of falling stones
on an ordinary day,
her hands pruned washing all your clothes
i long for you to talk to me.
you come to me now like a child
i long for you to tell me of your deliverance

come now with your heart in your throat
come to me with your heart in your throat
come now with your heart in your throat once more
once more, baby please once more, just once more
