Aldous Harding - Stop Your Tears Lyrics




I will never marry my love
I will die waiting for the bells
Death, come pull me underwater
I have nothing left to fear from hell

I was gifted at the music
I was born the day the year was new
Someone has stolen all the water
I keep the pills inside an urn

Lord, show me my daughter
Show me her before she burned

We go walking in the hallways
Now and then a record gives a tune
Sometimes we hang from our chambers
Baudelaire in the afternoon

The yellow rose is a stranger
The devil's invitation in bloom

I stand looking at my chamber
There are many things upon the floor
The blade is ready for the slaughter
The Virgin Mary hangs on the door

I will arrive at death's border
Take back the cover God has torn from me

I am at the river with baby
Her father enters with a leap
Hold her head above the water
She is pale against the stream

I am the horse beneath his daughter
He is the mountain underneath

  1. RB Bisc

    No one mentioning Nick Cave? I think it's an absolute reference to Aldous. A poet, a songwriter and interpreter.

  2. Danse Macabre

    this music video speaks to me on that single weird person level.

  3. Mister Pumpkinhead

    I picture googled enigma and got Aldous Harding.

  11. Jimwalker2008

    Man,that is just beautiful ! Only heard about her through a write up in today's 'Observer'' and have been seeking out her stuff all day !

  12. Razor Back

    What a talented Artist.

  13. Studioamateu Moulinzerotroy

    J aime le clip ,aussi .femme 38

  14. Abel

    I really hate her music videos. Why the weirdness? Her music is great but her videos are not art they're just crap.

  15. Anka Wolbert

    Once you've been pulled in, you're in her magical tunnel. It's impossible to tell whether this is a cleverly designed world you've entered or a pure random source of nature that she manages to express. Wonderful.

  16. cocteautwinned

    She's as deep as one can swim. ❤

  17. Pablo Gonçalves

  18. MrSinn

    I think she has some Irish in her

  19. MrSinn

    How is it possible that I have fallen in love with someone I've never met?

  20. Just An Observer

    This symbolism is easy sugar, fodder. So sad that people are glued to it and have no understanding; how to escape.

  21. Richard Buck

    Ode to Beth Gibbons "Mysteries" in the intro?

  22. DAMEIN O'FERRALL

    nice feet

  23. GodzillaKilla StarDestroyer

    I think fanny farts sound way better...

  24. Bruce Lee

    I 100% totally agree,

    She is very unique and original, a very rare talent compared to the talentless plastic manufactured so called artists of today.

    She can sing, play guitar and certainly perform with so much passion and feeling.

    Wonderful..👍

  25. nzmike

    I've been trying to fix lunch for the last hour and every time the next AH song comes on I just *have* to watch it all the way though - too many more of these songs and I'm going to starve! An incredible, breathtaking talent - as a fellow Kiwi I'm just so proud of her.

  26. YuriBogdan

    Это просто волшебство! Я влюбился! Очень талантливо!

  27. Rhonda Page

    Black face at its best huuuuuh get it together man lol

    cyn row

    Rhonda Page I was searching and searching to see if anyone mentioned it. This is a beautiful song but when I came across the music video I was shocked

  28. АЛДМ

    I am so lucky to have found her music. I have goosebumps all over, which doesn't happen often. This is haunting and beautiful

  29. Victoria Bennett

    This video is haunting and painful.

  30. Baby Pudge

    U r remarkable, ms. H

  31. Liya Ova

    Two high

  32. John Wallace

    Many may disagree but this is like an old Irish folk song. There is something about her voice that reminds me wee bit of Nico mixed with Moya Brennan

  33. Rich O Hanna

    Just discovered this very exciting artist! Thanks for sharing your work Aldous. Loving it!

  34. Jor Livia

    My 10th Aldous Video today March 26 2019 and I'm going to go hug my daughter

  35. Dominika Dudova

    This is so sad, it gives me the chills

  36. Ignacio Martínez

    I'm crying...

  37. АЛДМ

    my god this is incredible
    can't believe i've missed out on her for so long

    Wilson Allender

    А ДМ same she’s all I’ve been listening to lately. Thanks algorithms!

  38. Jay See

    The YouTube commercial at the beginning of this, was using another video of hers.

  39. Dan Stephenson

    <3 Ironically it's making me cry! <3

  40. Cian McConn

    All of her videos are completely different. Love it.

  41. payfortheircrimes

    I can't wait to see you at Brighton. Greetings from Stonehenge (or thereabouts) ♥️

  42. Ruby Couillonneur

    She is my cousin on my moms side

  43. Sigit Budi Prasetyo

    The ending of this video 🙏🙏🙏

  44. Gabby Jones

    Has a Joan Baez influence ❤️

  45. James Skibinski

    The woman in the mask is hiding from shame. The deterioration of her mask happens over time in the same way hidden guilt destroys us slowly. She did something, made some choice that killed her daughter. Her love that she will never marry, knows what she did. She lives and dances alone even though she is gifted with the music. Her daughter shows up at the end... the man with her would have loved and cherished her but is angry because of what the mother did. The daughter and man are but a figment of the masked lady’s imagination.
    This is what the video is about. Hannah correct me if wrong.

    Tjerk Muller

    Or she could be a parent with histrionic personality disorder. These things function like a Rorschach test, really. You get out of it what you put in it.

  46. Mika Del Guidice

    This song is proof of how beautiful pain can be when it's turned into art 💔

  47. jakheer hussain

    Man this is the most beautiful and strongest song..

  48. Emina Hist

    its so beautiful that it nearby is killing me.
    oh im so grateful you found your room and voice in this human world.
    ❤❤❤❤❤

  49. alfredagain

    Great song but a daft video. Reminds me of the horror film "Goodnight, Mommy".

  50. Indigo Graphics

    She is great.

  51. John Castle

    No matter how many times I watch this it always moves me .

  52. drag0nfly_girl

    There’s such a 1970s neo-folk vibe to her voice and manner of enunciation... I adore every second of it. Pure beauty.

  53. Matthew Starfish

    I love your style and I love the way you flaunt it.

  54. Jeroen Verheirstraeten

    cuts deep

  55. DJ Vazilisko

    So much in love with her!! 😍😥

  56. Snap Dragon

    Where have you been hiding Aldous? Gifted..You have skills..a new Kate Bush? 😊😊💜💜

  57. Malcolm Lee

    This song once sent me over the edge but like a drug, I cannot keep from coming back to it

  58. Livu S

    no words

  59. Kowhai Temoananui

    Words cannot express my love for this song. I come here to get away from all the auto tuned crap today’s society calls music.

  60. The Veggie Cyclist

    Struggling to find words.......wow.

  61. Reid Mitchell

    Hope all is well--noticed tour was canceled. Would love to hear you live in this lifetime.

  62. teddy-lee Lucas

    😍😍😢

  63. Rick Parker

    Makes Lorde look very 2nd rate.....which she is anyhow.

  64. Elise Bach

    I am absolutely obsessed with this woman. She has that Bjork quality in that you cannot stop watching her and her voice and words just pull you in, deep down that rabbit hole. I don't ever think she'll be "huge" in the traditional pop star sense because she doesn't spoon feed anything to her audience. But I predict she'll go down in the musical canon alongside Patty Smith, Kate Bush, Bjork, and the like. Fucking brilliant.

    Tim Sanchez

    Absolutely agree

    Jay R Heald

    There is something just incredibly unique yet so relatable with her.

    MrsFish7

    ..do you mean Patti Smith?..

    Ehm fae Dundee#

    I like the fact that you can never be certain where she is heading with the tone / pitch in her vocals.

    Tim Anon

    She's her own beast

  65. David Rawiri

    :-) such a breath of fresh air in these days of high volume ubiquitous aggressive drivel

  66. Em La Marre

    Stone Cold. Amazing. Stand reed straight Aldous. Push aside distraction. You are gleaming, flickering , don't explode. Arc to heaven .

  67. Steven Wright

    I personally find her music to be haunting and amazing, a wretched beauty. A smile to despair. Every video I've watched so far is weird. Makes me keep watching in anticipation for it all to unfold. I can only hope that one day I can bring such depth and sincerity to my music. And her and Marlon together is a dreamscape.

    nzmike

    "a wretched beauty". Yep, this. Couldn't have picked two better words to describe Aldous if I tried.

  68. Slippery Hours

    finds her way into my soul...

  69. Hemi *

    I was reading in today's TimeOut that, Aldous' Party was chosen best album of 2017. Spooky how she appeared after watching a Jethro Tull video.

  70. Lupco Kotevski

    Potentially the Laura Nyro for the 21st Century. 'And When I Die' (1967), 'You Don't Love Me When I Cry' (1969), and for something lighter 'Wedding Bell Blues' (1966).

    Petrus Delassio

    Nailed it!

  71. lateralbeats

    Rusted root sister contine

  72. Shannon Arthur

    The beauty, the ache, her music is magic.

  73. Sam Westlake

    Derivative, Unimaginative, Boring, uninspiring Dribble, obviously copying Lady Gaga

    ggofthe

    Sam Westlake there is no relationship between lady gaga and Aldous Harding. I see ten thousands more interesting things here than in lady gaga's music. You know, different tastes 😉

    Lupco Kotevski

    Aldous's gothic, dark, intense style has its origins in the Bronx genius Laura Nyro in the 1960's. Nyro invented this style of pop. For an example, 'You Don't Love Me When I Cry' (1969), 'And When I Die (1967), and the bewildering December's Boudior' (1968).

    East St Cafe

    if you knew her you wouldnt be saying that

    Lol, wut??

    Troll much? Lol.

    Cuánta belleza

    I will never marry my love
    I will die waiting for the bells
    Death, come pull me underwater
    I have nothing left to fear from hell

    Someone has stolen all the water
    I keep the pills inside an urn

    Lord, show me my daughter
    Show me her before she burned

    We go walking in the hallways

    I am the horse beneath his daughter
    He is the mountain underneath

    Stephen Garrett

    Does anyone else feel an unsettling Casey Anthony vibe when they hear this song? I love the song, but I can't shake that feeling.

    Jordan LeClair

    what a poet she is!

    Евгений

    Lord, show me my daughter
    Show me her before she burned - effects me too much.

  76. Maddie Anica

    I will never marry my love
    I will die waiting for the bells

  77. Darren carr

    What a great month I've just had for albums. First King Krule The OOZ then baxter dury Prince of tears and to cap it all off Aldous Harding Party. Amazing. I feel blessed

  78. jan vw

    Baudelaire in the afternoon... Heartbreaking, not once, not twice, always again and everytime deeper and deeper.

  79. Sam Bell

    Very unique artist, love Aldous, i like that she’s different than most music out there, stunning girl.

  80. el lee Silver

    that sucked lol

    drag0nfly_girl

    el lee Silver I feel so sorry for you.

  81. Sue McMiken

    Beautiful new singer worth listening to.

  82. willpower

    Don't mind me, just losing my shit in emotional despair, alone in my house with my mask as you do...

    Nay Tecuan

    willpower I know right! I wasn't even feeling any odd way other than myself till I heard this. Makes me think about childhood, pain, suffering, innocence, love, beautiful babies, my little dog who I lost.. .everything!!!!

  83. Haj Uhnas

    Maddy Prior for the 20tens. Thats a great thing

  84. Little Whore Records

    I really dig you.

  85. RosesAreBlue

    Beautiful! <3 xxx

  86. Jules Buckland

    This woman is beautiful. So much raw emotion ❤️

  87. jim mc

    its her best song by a country mile

  88. Ring0fSaturn

    Just this morning, I read about Aldous Harding in the Sunday San Francisco Chronicle "Pink Section". Read that Lorde had kind things to say about Aldous and am happy to say that Aldous is less pop. Have been a fan of 4AD since This Mortal Coil (1980s) and still enjoy Throwing Muses, Kristen Hersh. AH is visually dramatic with a keen sense of song.

  89. Sue Dykes

    A musical genius, methinks!!

  90. Tarquin Hoylett

    Superb. One of my favorite songs of the year.

  91. Grace Nottingham

    Amazing song and I love the video too, I cannot wait to see you perform with Lorde!

  92. Lee Flynn

    this girl is fantastic

  93. Andrew Harper

    so much grief 😢

  94. Bernard Jackson

    knock one out like this brings reflection we all need ... x
