British Sea Power - Salty Water lyrics

And would you care if you fell in?
And would your best friends follow you?
All out to sea
Oh, silence ye
Your salty water's hard to swallow
Yeah, I know
Yeah, I know

When all your greatest hopes
Were all bound up in ropes
All bound up in ropes

Shall we leave our bodies in the Peak District?
On rattles and twigs and where Honey said
Hope that we can go there soon
I hope that we can go there soon
I hope that we can go back soon, my love

And if you float you are in trouble
And if you don't then so long
All out to sea
To silence ye
Whose holy water's hard to swallow
Yeah, I know
Yeah, we know

When all my greatest hopes
Were all bound up in ropes
Were all bound up in ropes

When all my greatest hopes
Were all bound up in ropes
All bound up in ropes
And ceremoniously destroyed

When all my greatest hopes
Were all bound up in ropes
All bound up in ropes

And we leave our bodies in the Peak District
On rattles and twigs and maybe Holly sticks
All bound up in ropes
And ceremoniously destroyed
One by one by you
