Salt the Wound (lyrics Bex Mather (No more have I the wings to fly line - from trad song)

I say your name
Just to hear it again
Search the crowd for your face
Salt the wound so you stay

The wind still blows the blades
Across the hills are velvet made
And though my cries are lost into the sky
No more have I the wings to fly

No fix and no cure
No promise of Dawn
These cold nights last for years
May the earth keep you warm

I say your name
Just to hear it again
For the echo of flame
Till the birds sing again


from Epic in the Ordinary, released April 4, 2010
