Aoife O’Donovan – B61 Lyrics

B61 Lyrics By Aoife O’Donovan

He had time on his hand
She carried the world on his shoulders
He said meet me at the Hudson’s edge
Help me roll my boulder

So I went down, running down
Took the B61 across town
To where he was waiting at the ice house
Wish it was my house
He took me out back for a drink
Showed me the heart on his sleeve

Love is a daily good thing
I see it in your smolder
But I can’t feel it in my hands
And I’m wringing them more now I’m older

Remember when I went down running down
Took the B61 across town
To where you were waiting at the ice house
Wish it was my house
You took me out back for a drink
Showed me the heart on your sleeve

Like ships in the night
We go down without light
We burn up all our anthracite
And try to make a spark

Find a crack, let it in
It’ll come, it might be dim
Adjust your eyes I know you can
You’ll find me in the dark

How will I know if I’m the last one alive?

For forty one days and as many nights
I’ll be standing where we stood
Under an indigo sky
Watching flames jump from firewood
