Honey Sun

This song is by Elbow and appears on the album The Take Off and Landing of Everything (2014).

Woah, Jesus

I live and die by the hot and cold in strangers' eyes
But danger lies behind the tape across my door
I know a place where angels lace the lemonade
And I cannot stay where all the broken plans were made

Broken devotion
Can I jump in the gun?
And fly over the ocean
Can I jump in the gun?

And string up a net across Lafayette
And sing of my deeds while I'm gone
And I'll spin some lies to tell you upon
My return from the ends of the earth

She and I would death defy and promenade
She and I were profligate as de rigueur
She and I were for a Burton-Taylor made
She and I won't find another me and her

Broken devotion
Can I jump in the gun?
And fly over the ocean
Can I jump in the gun?

And string up a net across Lafayette
And sing of my deeds while I'm gone
And I'll spin some lies to tell you upon
My return from the ends of the earth

Oh love, like a sundown harbour
(My sunflower, my ringpip)
Oh love, like a falling bomb
(My sunflower, my ringpip)

Oh my love
(My sunflower, my ringpip)
Give her wings and armour
(My sunflower, my ringpip)

Oh my love
(My sunflower, my ringpip)
Gotta be long gone
(My sunflower, my ringpip)

Broken devotion
Can I jump in the gun?
And fly over the ocean
Can I jump in the gun?

And string up a net across Lafayette
And sing of my deeds while I'm gone
And I'll spin some lies to tell you upon
My return from the ends of the earth
