I wash his feet with angels' hair,
Cry baby boy your cupboards bare,
With vapour trails across the sky,
Said will you, won't you?
Never be mine

For you I hold my breath,
For you I get undressed,
The cupboards bare,
There's nothing left,
You should've known,
You should've guessed

A row of pearls beneath your skin,
Cry surface tension, I dive in,
My darling boy you need to know,
Migration claws this tethered soul

For you I hold my breath,
For you I get undressed,
The cupboards bare,
There's nothing left,
You should've known,
You should've guessed

This broken bird lost in the snow,
Migration claws this tethered soul,
And no one calls 'cos no one knows,
My darling boy I have to go

For you I hold my breath,
For you I get undressed,
The cupboards bare,
There's nothing left,
I stood the time,
I stood the test
You should've known,
You should've guessed,
You should've known,
You should've guessed,
You should've known,
You should've guessed,
You should've known,
You should've guessed,
You should've...
