Lisa Hannigan – Little Bird

Your heart sings like a kettle
and your words, they boil away like steam.
A lie burns long while the truth bites quick,
a heart is built for both it seems.
You are lonely as a church,
despite the queueing out your door.
I am empty as a promise no more.

When the time comes,
and rights have been read,
I think of you often
but for once I meant what I said.

I was salted by your hunger,
now you’ve gone and lost your appetite
and a little bird is every bit as handy in a fight
I am lonely as a memory
despite the gathering round the fire.
Aren’t you every bird on every wire?

When the time comes,
and rights have been read,
I think of you often
but for once I meant what I said.
Here I stay, I lay me down,
in a house by the Hill.
Dug from the rubble, cut from the kill.

Lisa Hannigan – I Don’t Know

I don’t know what you smoke or what countries you’ve been to if you speak any other languages other than your own but I’d like to meet you I don’t know if you drive if you love the ground beneath you I don’t know if you write letters or panic on the phone still I’d like to call you all the same, if you want to, I am game.

I don’t know if you can swim or if the sea has any draw for you if you’re better in the morning or when the sun goes down I’d like to talk to you I don’t know if you can dance if the thought ever occurred to you if you eat what you’ve been given or push it round your plate still I’d like to cook for you all the same, I would want to, I am game,

If you walk my way and I could keep my head we could creep away in the dark or maybe not, we could shoot it down anyway.

I don’t know if you read novels or the magazines if you love the hand that feeds you I assume that your heart’s been bruised I know I’d like to know you you don’t know if I can draw at all or what records I am into if I sleep like a spoon or rarely at all or maybe you would do? maybe you would do

if I walk your way I will keep my head we will feel our way through the dark though I don’t know you I think that I would do I don’t fall easy at all

Ich bin die andere Seite von dem, was im Lichte ist! Ich bin die innere Stimme, die nicht zu überhören ist. Doch unerhört verhallt - verbannt und unerkannt... Ich bin der Grund, in dem die Wurzeln vordringen, sich verankern: In der Finsternis.
