Heart Of My Own
Basia Bulat Lyrics


Under that burning ether that falls
Down on these walls
Burning my arms
I've been alarmed of what is said by you
For every word I could undo
I've been uncrossed, and I've been untrue
I've been the thorn, I've been the heart

But the heart of my own - burn it down low
The light in your verse and the shadow between
The way that I was when I used to know
If I go, what do I hold?
Oh, the maid or the mother I'll be
If only the loom and the thread were whole
It is work to be dancing out here
If tomorrow I'm mending the empty bones
There are roses that come without seeking
There are the ones that I have to sow
In your verses that I am repeating
The way that I was when I used to know

I wrote on these walls a simple charm to keep the wolves at bay
Gave all my heart the strength of my arms
To hold you close and safe
But I kept my eyes closed, I'll never know
Where the shadows are these days
I stood in the room of a house divided
And it washed away from me
Oh, and it washed away from me

Oh, and it washed away from me
It washed away from me to take my own

Burn it down low
The light in your verse and the shadow between
The way that I was when I used to know
If I go, what do I hold?
Oh, the maid or the mother I'll be
If only the loom and the thread were whole
It is work to be dancing out here
If tomorrow I'm mending the empty bones
There are roses that come without seeking
There are the ones that I have to sow
In your verses that I am repeating
The way that I was when I used to know

LYRICS

Under that burning
Ether that falls
Down on these walls
Burnin' my arms
I've been alone
When I sat by you

For every word I could undo
I've been uncrossed
And I've been untrue
I've been the thorn
I've been the hunt

With a heart of my own
Burn it down low
The light in your verse
And the shadow between
The way that I was when I used to roam

Back home
What do I hold?
For the maid or the mother I'll be
If only the loom and a thread will hold
It is work too but as that I hear it
Tomorrow I'll mend it
The empty bones

There are the roses that come without seekin'
They are the ones that I have to sow
In your verses that I have repeated
The way that I was when I used to know

I wrote on these walls
A simple charm
To keep the wounds at bay
Gave of a heart
The strength of my arms
To hold you close and safe

But I kept my eyes closed
I'll never know
Where the shadows are these days
I stood in the room of a house divided

Ah, and it washed away from me
It washed away from me, oh
And It washed away from me
It washed away to take my own
Burn it down low

The light in your verse
And the shadow between
The way that I was when I used to roam

Back home
What do I hold?
For the maid or the mother I'll be
If only the loom and a thread will hold
It is work too but as that I hear it

Tomorrow I meant it
The empty bones
There are the roses that come without sinkin'
They are the ones that I have to sow
In your verses that I have repeated
The way that I was when I used to know

Underrated artists are better than the overrated artists.

599k views ain't bad. A wonderful talent.

risumotus

This woman is real artist. It doesn't say anything about her qualities, that the large public doesn't regognise her. It says something about the public and maybe about her connections in the music world.

DefenestrateYourself

Envious Green Maybe they’re underrated for a reason?

Envious Green underrating is overrated

This song makes me think of late evenings in the smokey mountains. Good stuff.
