The Wanting Comes in Waves / Repaid Lyrics - The Decemberists

Review The Song (0)



Mother, I can hear your footfall, now
Soft disturbance in the dead fog, how
It precedes you like a black smoke pall
Still, the wanting comes in waves

And you delivered me from danger, then
Tore my cradle from the reedy glen
Swore to save me from the world of men
Still, the wanting comes in waves
In waves
And waves

And the wanting comes in waves
And the wanting comes in waves
And I want this night
And I want this night
Oh, oh.

How I made you,
sponsored links
I wrought you,
I pulled you,
From moore, I labored you
From cancer, I cradled you

And now
This is how I am repaid
This is how I am repaid

Remember when I found you,
The miseries that hounded you
And I gave you motion
Anointed with lotions

And now
This is how I am repaid
This is how I am repaid

Mother, hear this proposition, right
Grant me freedom to enjoy this night
And I’ll return to you at break of light
For the wanting comes in waves
And waves
And waves

Still, the wanting comes in waves,
Still, the wanting comes in waves,
Still, the wanting comes in waves.

And you owe me life,
And you owe me life,
Oh, oh.

And if I grant you
This favor: to hand you
Your life for the evening,
I will retake by morning

And so
Consider it your debt repaid
Consider it your debt repaid
Repaid
Repaid
