"Presuming Ed (Rest Easy)" as written by and Guy Edward John/potter Garvey....
My Brother Fear is only natural
You need to chill your fucking bones
Lay her down, drink this in
While you can.

Whisper, rest easy,
There's a belly full of life.
Watch her, she's dreaming
Of a belly full of life
Right there on the pillow.

This is why we are here.
Rest easy.
This is why we are here.
Rest easy.

You know that everything is finite,
You know you too are not alone.
Soothe her brow, drink her smile,
Watch her dream.

You'll feel Christ like when it's breathing in and out
You'll feel Christ like when it's breathing in and out
Right there on the pillow

This is why we are here,
Rest Easy

    General CommentThis is about a man whose partner is pregnant. He is scared and his friend, lets call him Guy, is telling him not to worry. Beautiful song.

    General Comment'This is why we are here' seems like a direct reference to the humankind's basic biological aim; to reproduce.

    Lovely song, guy's voice is beautiful.

    General CommentWhat about the song title?
    Presuming Ed is a character in the film 'Withnail & I' but is that relevant?
