Drawn to the Blood
Sufjan Stevens Lyrics


I'm drawn to the blood
The flight of a one-winged dove
How? How did this happen?
How? How did this happen?

The strength of his arm
My lover caught me off guard
How? Head of a rabbit
How? Head of a rabbit

For my prayer has always been love
What did I do to deserve this?

With blood on my sleeve
Delilah, avenge my grief
How? God of Elijah
How? God of Elijah

As fire to the sun
Tell me what I have done
How? Heart of a dragon
How? Heart of a dragon

For my prayer has always been love
What did I do to deserve this now?
How did this happen?

I’m drawn to the blood
The flight of a one-winged dove
How? How did this happen?
How? How did this happen?

The strength of his arm
My lover caught me off guard
How? Head of a rabbit
How? Head of a rabbit

For my prayer has always been love
What did I do to deserve this?

With blood on my sleeve
Delilah, avenge my grief
How? God of Elijah
How? God of Elijah

As fire to the sun
Tell me what I have done
How? Heart of a dragon
How? Heart of a dragon

For my prayer has always been love
What did I do to deserve this now?
How did this happen?

This hurts my amygdala-

The verse
The strength of his arm,
My lover caught me off guard
How? Head of a rabbit
How? Head of a rabbit

I consider rabbits quick and sneaky enough to run off when you saw it coming although you didn't expect it.
It's similar, let alone the exact same to betrayal really, easy come, easy go. It leaves you with the remainders of you feeling so alone.



Hannah Reece

The strength of his arm,
my lover caught me off guard.

For my prayer has always been love,
what did I do to deserve this?

My heart goes out to all the domestic violence survivors that found this song💜
we deserve a tender love.

He will hide you with his feathers, and under his wings you will find refuge; his faithfulness will be your shield and rampart. -psalms 91:4

“The strength of his arm- my lover caught me off guard” I don't know why but I really want to draw a scene depicting that

Miguel Del Valle

when you thought you could trust a lover and she leaves you. rather imagined than lived, trust me on that one

As i was recently diagnosed with a chronic illness that is extremely painful, this song made me cry because i resonate with his feelings of helplessness and anger at an unknowable cause of pain and suffering
