Your Protector
Fleet Foxes Lyrics


She left a week to roam
Your protector's coming home
Keep your secrets with you
Safe from the outside

You walk along the stream
Your head caught in a waking dream
Your protector's coming home, coming home

As you lay to die beside me, baby
On the morning that you came
Would you wait for me?
The other one
Would wait for me

As you lay to die beside me, baby
On the morning that you came
Would you wait for me?
The other one
Would wait for me

You run with the devil
You run with the devil

Tell your brother to be good
Tell your sister not to go
Tell your mother not to wait
Tell your father I was good

As you lay to die beside me, baby
On the morning that you came
Would you wait for me?
The other one
Would wait for me

Keep your secrets with you
Safe from the outside


You walk along the stream
Your head caught in a waking dream
Your protector's coming home, coming home


As you lay to die beside me, baby
On the morning that you came
Would you wait for me?
The other one
Would wait for me


As you lay to die beside me, baby
On the morning that you came
Would you wait for me?
The other one
Would wait for me


You run with the devil
You run with the devil


Tell your brother to be good
Tell your sister not to go
Tell your mother not to wait
Tell your father I was good


As you lay to die beside me, baby
On the morning that you came
Would you wait for me?
The other one
Would wait for me

That lovely moment when you find the song you can sing without having to break your voice as an alto

Stimp Gimpson

This is a wonderful track from the Fleet Foxes' eponymous debut album. Robin Pecknold has some unique phrasing to his songs.

Alex

Funny you mention that bit about the phrasing. It instantly reminded me of, "the Decemberists".

"keep your secrets with you girl, safe from the outside".. I will Robin, I will.
