PJ Harvey – Bows & Arrows


I saw your face
Whiter the purity
Then I saw savages
Standing before me

Bows and arrows
Tipped with poison
Make tenderness please
Stand by my pillow

I see evil
Everytime I dream
I see earth’s poison
I hear violence sing
Even your touch
Once so pure
Comes fates cold hand
On my locked door

Won’t you send those angels to watch over me?

I can’t catch the bow
That this planet has thrown
I can’t catch this bow
On my own
In come the arrows
Like a needle

You pierce my heart
And I taste poison
You pierce my soul
With bows and arrows

Won’t you send those angels to watch over me?
