Rake Lyrics

Alela Diane – Rake Lyrics

Well, I used to wake and run with the moon
Lived like a rake and a young man
Covered my lovers with flowers and wounds
And after the devil would frighten

The Sun, she would come, and beat me back down
Every cruel day had its nightfall
Welcomed the stars with wine and guitars
Full of fire and forgetful

My body was sharp and the dark air clean
Outraged my joyful companion
And whispering women how sweet they did seem
Kneeling for me to command them

Time was like water, and I was the sea
I wouldn't have noticed its passing
Except for the turning of night into day
And the turning of day into cursing

You look at me now, and don't think I don't know
What all your eyes are saying
Does he want us to believe these ravings and lies
Are just tricks that his brain's been playing?

Lover of women, he can't hardly stand
He trembles, is bent, and is broken
I've fallen, it's true, but I say to you
Hold your tongues until after I've spoken

I was takin' my pride and my pleasure, I know
Laughed and said I'd be forgiven
My laughter turned round, I was blazin' and sinnin'
My friend we're holding a wedding

I buried my face, but it spoke once again:
Night to the day we are bindin'
Now the dark air is like fire on my skin
Even the moonlight is blindin'

Now the dark air is like fire on my skin
Even the moonlight is blindin'
