The Apocalypse Song
St. Vincent Lyrics


Wait
I'll be swifter than the speed of light
Carbon my body a billion years of time
You wake with the stitches over both your eyes
And deny me my body and all earthly delights

It's time
You are light
I guess you are afraid of what everyone is made of
All your praying moments amount to just one breath
Please keep your victory
But give me little death

It's time
You are light
I guess you are afraid of what everyone is made of

So take to the streets with apocalypse refrain
Your devotion has the look of a lunatic's gaze

Pozdrawiam fanów i chcę tutaj wkleić swoje tłumaczenie/interpretację tekstui. Mam nadzieję, że komuś się spodoba ;)
Jeszcze będę prędka jak szybkość światła, blask
Węgiel mego ciała, miliardów świetlnych czas
Gdy wzrok będziesz mamił zasłoną dziwnych prawd
Odmówisz memu ciału przyjemnych ziemskich spraw
Już czas, tyś blask
I okazujesz strach, gdy duszę ubieram w piach
Czas i blask
I okazujesz strach, gdy duszę ubieram w piach
Wszystkie Twoje modły mniej niczym jeden wiew
Zatrzymaj słów wygraną, i nie wiąż nimi mnie
Już czas, tyś blask
I okazujesz strach, gdy duszę ubieram w piach
Czas i blask
I okazujesz strach, gdy duszę ubieram w piach
Czas, czas, czas, czas
Już czas, tyś blask
I okazujesz strach, gdy duszę ubieram w piach
Czas i blask
I okazujesz strach, gdy duszę ubieram w piach
gdy duszę ubieram w piach
Więc głoś wszem w obec sądnego dnia refren
Twe oddanie w świętym szale, nie dostrzegasz więcej mnie

What a criminally underrated artist!

Le Bulge

Fucking astonishing song. This woman makes some amazing albums. Actor might be top five all time for me, it's that good.

Kate Harder

perfect song while the world feels like it's actually ending rn

I just saw St Vincent on the Grammys and had an instant flashback to high school, listening to this on repeat on my Sony NW-E and having so many teen feelings. I'm glad she's done so well for herself. She's something else. Marry Me carried me through a lot.

ProtestSong68

such abilities... its weird her vintage way to sing with all of that edgy stuff she plays like a bjork for the younger generations

emeraldmaria

The second line always give me chills.

PinkOnBlack

This is absolutely my favorite song off Marry Me. Why does she never seem to play it live?

Dear Annie, don't let anyone tell you you aren't the epitome of awesome. Sincerely, a sane person.

dandycowb0y

why is this song so underrated?

Thomas Dunn

Definitely the gem of 'Marry Me'.
