Aoife O’Donovan – Phoenix Lyrics

PH*enix Lyrics By Aoife O’Donovan

Time’s not the villain
Coming up behind you
Is a marigold sun, love if you’re willing, take a little more time

I smell fire
It’s coming from the flames that are dancing on my wings
I’m a bird on a wire, killing time

Fever’s got me shaking
It rises up like a road to meet
Me, fever’s got me quaking like
San Andreas fault

Just put a cloth to my brow
I’ll soar like a pH*enix from the ashes, put a pretty blanket down
I’m ready now

Looking for forgiveness
Looking in every cupboard in every room
I’m bearing witness to the pa**ing time

But the clock is ticking
Like an old man singing at the top of his lungs
And the light is flickering, we’re running out

Fever’s got me shaking
It rises up like a road to meet
Me, fever’s got me quaking like
San Andreas fault

Just put a cloth to my brow
I’ll soar like a pH*enix from the ashes, put a pretty blanket down
I’m ready now

Everybody’s looking for somebody to blame
The stages of sadness, how many can you name?
I stopped at anger
Never felt the same

They say it’ll fade, my scars, my tears will dry
And I’ll lie under the stars again
Not wondering where you are

Where you are

Fever’s got me shaking
It rises up like a road to meet
Me, fever’s got me quaking like
San Andreas fault

Just put a cloth to my brow
I’ll soar like a pH*enix from the ashes, put a pretty blanket down
I’m ready now

I’m ready now, I’m ready now
