Joanna Newsom

Have One On Me

my man and me
we could rest and remain here easily
we are tested and pained by what's beyond our bed
we're blessed and sustained by what is not said

no one knows what is coming
who will harvest what we have sown
or how I've been dulling and dulling
in the service of the heart alone

or how i am warmed to the bone by the river
and in the river, made a life
i'm your little life-giver
i will give my life

have you seen what i've seen?
don't you know what you ought to do?
i was born to love
and i intend to love you

down in the valley, where the fields of green
watch my luck turn full into love
paralyzed daisy, cling 'til only i may love you

i am easy
easy to keep
honey, you please me
even in your sleep

but my arms want to carry
my heart wants to hold
tell me your worries:
i want to be told

sit and see how the fog from the port in the bay
lays like snow at the foot of the Roanoke
hear the frog going courtin'
'til the day he croaks
saying even then, "how there is light in the river
there's a river made of light
c'mon, you little light-giver
give your light"

who asked, who asked you if you wanna be
loved by me?
who died and made you
in charge of who loves who?
i (..)
if i have my way, i will love you
want can't carry the weight
change the fate of two
i've been waiting for a break
how long's it gonna take? let me love you
how about it? how about what i have to say?
how about if i (..)
how'm i gonna stay here without you?
