Bonnie 'Prince' Billy - (Keep Eye On) Other's Gain lyrics

Others don't have a bed like mine
they sleep out in the rain

and others hearts are guarded from
the blows of random pain

but mama made my arm so strong
and papa taught me oft and long

that if you are to stay ahead
keep eye on other's gain
keep eye on other's gain and know
there's only so much here upon the earth
to go around

and keep your loved ones near
and keep your loved ones near
and let them know just where you be
cause others need you right near by
just as you need me

you need me at the table
sitting down and nodding grace

and holding you just by
laying ksses on your face

and kisses on your face
and elbows to fend way
your eyes and mouth from harmful blows
and body from decay

keep eye on other's gain and know
there's only so much here upon the earth
to go around

and keep your loved ones near
and keep your loved ones near
and let them know just where you be
cause others need you right near by
just as you need me
