DEVIL'S RESTING PLACE

by Laura Marling

I woke up one morning
To know that I had gone
Finally taken a step
And jumped right off the wall
When you come to call on me
That's why my eyes are glazed
I've been with the devil
In the devil's resting place

I'm loathed to say
That I've been to stay
I go with the devil
In the devil's resting place

When you ask to drink of me
I think hard on the case
Look down to my hallowed cup
And take myself a taste
Bitterness is thick like blood
And cold as a wind sea breeze
If you must drink of me
Take of me what you please

I'm loathed to say
It's the devil's taste
I go with the devil
To the devil's resting place

Water won't clean you
Water won't clean you
You only hold yourself
To the things you do

Come up here to speak to me
And hold your face to mine
Any man who can hold my gaze
Has done his job just fine
You just sold your like away
To be with me tonight
Hold your head against my chest
I think you'll be just fine

I'm loathed to say
It's the devil's place
I go with the devilv Where the devil's rests his face
I go with the devil
Where the devil's rests his face

Water won't clean you, water won't clean you
You only hold yourself to the things you do
You only hold yourself to the things you do
