Edge Of The World lyrics - Carrie Elkin
We act like ourselves, but is it self that we want?
Or is it just some small piece of that woman over there?
Cause sheâ€™s dipped in gold and covered in pearls
OH NO, I wanna go to the edge of the world
And you can come along and dance with me some,
And weâ€™ll twist and weâ€™ll twirl â€˜till our hearts come undone
And Iâ€™ll carve you a space; you can rest with me there
And youâ€™ll tell me you love me every day of the year. Ohâ€¦.
Weâ€™ll build us a house use the mud from our insides
Get rid of all the things that make us unclear
And that house will be free cause weâ€™re so goddamn clouded
And then weâ€™ll be free, free of all the free of all the
Things weâ€™re afraid of and the things left unsaid
And the things ainâ€™t got no business that dance in our heads
Thereâ€™s so much room for silence when thereâ€™s no one else around
Thereâ€™s so much room for you and me to be found. Ohâ€¦.
Weâ€™ll plant ourselves a garden and work â€˜till weâ€™re tired
And then take our weary bodies, and lay down by the fire
Weâ€™ll wake when itâ€™s dark feel the silence of night
Weâ€™ll squeeze out the palm leaves use the oil for lamplight
Weâ€™ll walk with the stars and sing with the wind
To the baby on your shoulders and god in our hands
And Iâ€™ll say a little prayer, kiss you on the cheek
Iâ€™ll say itâ€™s time for bed oh, itâ€™s time for sleep
And Iâ€™ll dream about the woman whoâ€™s dipped in gold
And Iâ€™ll wake to remember the time we chose the edge of the world.
