The Last Living Rose

This song is by PJ Harvey and appears on the album Let England Shake (2011).

Goddamn Europeans!
Take me back to beautiful England
And the grey, damp filthiness
Of ages and battered books and
Fog rolling down behind the mountains
On the graveyards and dead sea-captains

Let me walk through the stinking alleys
To the music of drunken beatings
Past the Thames River, glistening like gold
Hastily sold for nothing

Let me watch night fall on the river
The moon rise up and turn to silver
The sky move, the ocean shimmer
The hedge shake, the last living rose

PJ Harvey
