Ed Harcourt - Fears Of A Father lyrics

You can go and sing your hymns,
You can go and say your prayers
Find a way to escape
You can go and chase your tail,
Burn the ship, burn the sail
Til your words don't form any shape
You can hide yourself in the drink
You can teach your mind not to think,
Not be frightened to death
But when you look in the mirror
And your eyes become clearer
You'll dig yourself outta this mess

Dying ain't much over living
You'll lose your top billing,
So take second place
Face all the devils who lower your levels
And fix that crooked face
Love of my life
You have my heart
Love of my life
You caught us off guard
Oh the fears of a father don't scare me
I'm ready to love

And now that this star's ascending
I will stop this pretending
And be the best that I can
I've always shot from the hip
Never bitten my lip
It's a trait that you'll soon understand
But I've got a good way to spoil
Before I shuffle off this coil
And feel the air turn thin
Oh if I broke any oath fear of losing you both
Well I just don't know where to begin

Dying ain't much over living
You'll lose your top billing
So take second place
Face all the devils who lower your levels
And fix that crooked face
Love of my life
You have my heart
Love of my life
You caught us off guard
Oh the fears of a father don't scare
I'm ready for love

You won't find me by the streetlights
Or hanging off the rails
Climbing up the steeple or on a bed of nails
Drowning all my sorrows for the sake of saving face
Burning all my bridges
Cause I think they'll light my way
Oh blood of my blood
You have my heart
Love of my life
You caught us off guard
Oh the fears of a father don't scare me
I'm ready to love
