lifeblood: songs: lyrics: hunter's prayer


there's that velvet horned buck
telling me to measure up
now he locks my eyes
and i know just what i'm here for

now love be swift love be kind
while you're making up your mind
i know i don't deserve it
but i need something to spell me

it's friday night and everything's shut down
everyone around here is broke and tired
steam is rising from an august storm
it's like i just got born

so life be honest life be free
while you're pouring out of me
or swelling up
cause i know that i get greedy

and i know this creek is gonna rise
and sometimes it will run dry
yeah please don't let me waste it
ah but please don't let me drown

give me a moon to keep my fears at bay
give me a dog that don't run away
give me a love that don't fade
oh let me walk in decency

now death be gentle death be proud
but most of all just be allowed
yeah let me pull the knife
across for mercy's sake now

and if i just don't have the guts
will you come and prop me up
yeah i know what's right
but i just can't seem to do it

give me a moon to keep my fears at bay
give me a dog that don't run away
give me a love that don't fade
oh let me walk in decency
oh let me walk in decency
