Moses Sumney – Bless Me (before you go)

From the double album græ.

BLESS ME

It’s so predictable
To farm the parable
From every tête-à-tête
But when you see the end
In every beginning
Lessons are all you get

Bless me
Before you go
You’re goin’ nowhere with me

Met you in the wrestling pit
You came when I needed it
A body on top of me
To teach me
Stayed up past the witching hour
You showed me your secret powers
I wish
That mine
Could freeze time

Bless me
Before you go
You’re goin’ nowhere with me

Cupid has it out for me
Gave me crooked alchemy
Eros,
Oh god of flings,
Sees the beauty in all things
But stupid’s as stupid does
I grasp your cloak because
Maybe you’ll grant me wings
If I cling

Bless me
Before you go
You’re goin’ nowhere with me

You must be an angel
Your conscience is clean
Why would you soil yourself
Wit a monster like me
If the good lord sent ya
The good lord can take ya back
I hope when he comes for you
You illuminate the path

(Bless me before you go)
(Bless me before you go)

You’re goin’ nowhere with me
You’re goin’ nowhere with me
You’re goin’ nowhere with me
You’re goin’ nowhere with me

Bless me
Before you go
You’re goin’ nowhere with me

Bless me
Before you go

BEFORE YOU GO
The ache
The aching
A lot of creation stories begin with separation
The ache
The ache
What does it mean to be in love?
The ache
What does in love mean? What does in love mean? What does in love mean? I don’t know – I don’t. I’m in love everyday, I love –
The ache
The aching
The aching
When we die
The aching
We won’t be together
The aching
You will never see that person again. Now go

What do you think?
