Tanner Cohen - Were The World Mine lyrics

TIMOTHY:
I see their knavery,
This is to make an ass of me,
To fright me...if they could

But I will not stir
From this place do what they can,
I will work...up and down here

And I will sing that they shall hear,
That I am not,
I am not afraid,
I am not...afraid

I know not by what power I'm made bold,
But still you flout my insufficiency,
The more my prayer, the lesser is my grace

My ear should catch your voice
My eye your eye,
My tongue should catch your tongue's
Sweet melody,
My tongue your tongue
Were the world mine,
And I will sing that they shall hear
That I am not
I am not afraid
I am not...afraid

Fairies away,
Fetch me that flower,
FAIRIES:
Up and down and up and down
TIMOTHY:
I will lead them up and down

Fairies away,
Swift as a shadow,
FAIRIES:
Up and down and up and down
TIMOTHY:
I will lead them up and down

O, why rebuke you him that loves you so?
Lay breath so bitter on your bitter foe,
On your bitter foe

JONATHON:
What angel wakes me from my flowery bed?
I pray thee, gentle mortal, sing again
I pray thee, gentle mortal, sing again

Mine ear is much enamored of thy note,
So is mine eye enthralled to thy shape,
I'll follow thee,
I'll follow thee,
And make a heaven of hell

I'll follow thee
I'll follow thee
And make a heaven of hell
JONATHON and TIMOTHY:
And make a heaven of hell

TIMOTHY and FARIES:
Fairies away,
Fetch me that flower,
Up and down and up and down
I will lead them up and down

Fairies away,
Swift as a shadow,
Up and down and up and down
I will lead them up and down

Fairies away,
Fetch me that flower,
Up and down and up and down
I will lead them up and...

Fairies away,
Swift as a shadow,
Up and down and up and down
I will lead them up and down

TIMOTHY and JONATHON:
My ear should catch your voice
My eye should catch your eye,
My tongue your tongue,
Were the world mine
