Newborn Lyrics by Elbow 



Newborn by Elbow


I'll be the corpse in your bathtub
Useless
I'll be as stiff as a post
If you hold me like a newborn
Whisper what you feel
My badly strung declaration
To you
You'll spend the end of your days
Gently smiling like a newborn
Whisper what you feel
My badly strung declaration
To you
You'll spend the end of your days
Gently smiling like a newborn
Love not by degrees

Press your lips
To my eyes
Taste my tears
On your tongue
Pull the blinds
Play our song
Nothing's changed
Nothing could be wrong

Scream in the night
Kick and strike like a newborn
Holding me shaking awake in the dark
All of these promises kept still unbroken
Tracing the scars, tracing the scars
Even and cold as we both become older
Your arms bound about me
The hush in your voice
The warmth of your fingers entwined around mine
In the eve of our lives
Never a choice
