"Your Name on My Tongue" as written by Billy Bragg and Joe Henry....
I heard the bell ringing
In tower of last desire
Crum fumb small beginnings
The living world undone
Now it hums that is singing
Like words out on the wire
They don’t like surrender
Your name on my tongue

Grief was my companion
It pushed me like a seed
Compass blade at my fool
Pointing up to the sun
Fear bears a strange courage
It’s a whole conspiracy
The troops kneel down the path
Your name on my tongue
Your name on my tongue
Your name on my tongue
Your name on my tongue

Get up, get up, fix it up, no time
Get up, fix it, fix it up, no time
Get up, get up, fix it up, no time
Get up, fix it, fix it up, no time

Cause I’m still in love, yeah I’m still in love
I’ve set out a table, I’ve made up my bed
Ceiling above my head, the floor down
But I’ve barely been able
To hold my own on my peace
But I’ll never let go,
Your name on my tongue
Your name on my tongue
Your name on my tongue
Your name on my tongue.
