Agnes Obel - Stretch Your Eyes Lyrics




The darkness and the ghost
They dance so sweet and slow
Dug-out from below there
To damn the gods

A grip that will hold
So tight and close
Around my throat with
The weight of all our lives

You can give to my heart
Thousand words or more
You can give to my heart
Thousand words or more

The drum you stroke
Damn that beat so old
In the ground it grows there
To damn the sun (oh what will come to life)

Gates of gold
In your head you hold
A kingdom molten
May the gods be on your side

You can give to my heart
Thousand words or more
You can give to my heart
Thousand words or more

  22. Tijana Petrovic

    Music most of the time distracts me while reading so I've never been able to follow the plot or analysis of any work accompanied with music until now. I'm in awe, its almost like this song and her music in general sets the tone of any novel I've read for the past month. Her music is inspiring in so many ways.

  23. sarlko SOA

    The darkness and the ghost
    They dance so sweet and slow
    Dug-out from below there
    To damn the gods

    A grip that will hold
    So tight and close
    Around my throat with
    The weight of all our lives

    You could give to my heart
    Thousand words or more
    You could give to my heart
    Thousand words or more

    The drum you stroke
    Damn that beat so old
    In the ground it grows there
    To damn the sun (oh what will come to life)

    Gates of gold
    In your head you hold
    A kingdom molten
    May the gods be on your side

    You could give to my heart
    Thousand words or more
    You could give to my heart
    Thousand words or more

  64. Eva Gomez

    True story: I saw her live a few weeks ago. I was just standing there absorbing all of these violins and crescendos and her voice, her voice literally hypnotized me. My palms started getting sweaty. I kept looking for the bathroom sign because I thought I was going to pass out. I didn't understand why I was feeling that way in the moment. I had food in my stomach. Didn't even drink alcohol. It was simply her music. Her music is that powerful.

    I always find myself in another world while listening Agnes. Here lyrics:

    The darkness and the ghost
    They dance so sweet and slow
    Dug-out from below there
    To damn the gods

    A grip that will hold
    So tight and close
    Around my throat with
    The weight of all our lives

    You can give to my heart
    Thousand words or more
    You can give to my heart
    Thousand words or more

    The drum you stroke
    Damn that beat so old
    In the ground it grows there
    To damn the sun (oh what will come to life)

    Gates of gold
    In your head you hold
    A kingdom molten
    May the gods be on your side

    You can give to my heart
    Thousand words or more
    You can give to my heart
    Thousand words or more
