Esmerelda

Ben Howard


Oh, blinded, now I see
That I could not hold you
My orange tree
Left in the darkened room for three of us to share

Oh, maybe you were free,
Before my blackened wing covered you
I took the sing from your song
I made a bed
Where you don't belong

Oh, poor me, she fell beneath the wheels to help me up
Black sea, I failed to be a light you found in love
Oh poor me, she fell beneath the wheels to help me up
Black sea, the monster killed the melody you loved

Now I'm going places on my own

Blinded, now I see
That death moves amongst us,
And with such ease the rafters surround us.
These silent beasts are hard to bear.

Lonely, oh, no not me
I have a grave to dig, fast moving feet
You gave me light
Where it once was gone
I made a bed
Where you don't belong

Poor me, she fell beneath the wheels to help me up
Black sea, I failed to be the light you found in love
Oh poor me, she fell beneath the wheels to help me up
Black sea, the monster killed the melody you loved

Now I'm going places on my own
