lyrics

BONEMAKER'S SONG

Oh, the child of the wind
Is a bone
And you took all your blessings
From a paperback tome
You had asked me so gently
'Bout the question of home
Oh, the child of the wind
Is a bone

Oh, the weight of my heart
Is a pear
Tell me, what should I watch for
As you climb down my stairs?
I will wait for your answer
And I will not despair
Oh, the weight of my heart
Is a pear

Oh, the call of the crow
Is mine
Sounds a blood-basted warning
Over furrows of time
Will you blame my black tidings
On the mud and the wine?
Oh, the call of the crow
Is mine

Oh, the mark on my skin
Is you
Be they proudly and sweetly
All the things we will do!
And there's no greater measure
Than what we said we knew
Oh, the mark on my skin
Is you

Oh, the smell of the sea
Closes in
Hide your face in the rushes,
Let the bonemakers win
There's a want in your bellows,
There's a longing within
As the smell of the sea closes in
Oh, the smell of the sea
Closes in.
