Raised By Swans - Hail of Arrows lyrics

Sleep and forget until the names we knew are
Bodies walled in a doorless room
And we won’t turn back
Clouds of sparrows are startled into flight
As a hail of arrows is unleashed at the sky
And we won’t turn back

So here we go

This might curse our luck
These mirror-haunted hallways
We’re echo-testing for a hole we’ll never find
So let’s just close our eyes this time
I will love you always
I wouldn’t lie
I wouldn’t lie

So pour me out on the eastern coast where the water’s cold as a mermaid’s ghost
And the long days hide
And one of these nights we will bloom in the trees
Push our old sick hearts from the roots to the leaves
And then open wide

So here we go

This might curse our luck
These mirror-haunted hallways
We’re echo-testing for a hole we’ll never find
So let’s just close our eyes this time
I will love you always
I wouldn’t lie
I wouldn’t lie

Locked hearts keep lost time

’Cause it’s hard to lay arms down
In the arms of the one who lays you bare
But if we don’t shield ourselves
Then we won’t have to fear the arrows
