Cardigans, The - Feathers And Down Lyrics




So you trying to do what they did
Your friends that turn to liquid
And got lost in the sea
And now you’re drowning me
With your talk of four leaf clovers
You turn to rocks and omen
To beat the ambient harm
But it’s bruising your karma

Oh I wish my arms were wider
I wish that I could hide you
So you can rest and repair
Without the blanket of sorrow
The thick and the grey
Your blanket of woe
So heavy and stained
And it only weighs you down

So you thought that getting sober
Would mean your life was over
I don’t think it’s that bad
I don’t think it’s that sad
Just you sleep a little baby
Leave the world alone and later
If you wake up alive
That old blanket of sorrow
Could be feathers and down
Your blanket of woe
Would leave you alone
And I can love you till you drown

Come to me let’s drown
Come baby let’s drown
In feathers and down

    So you trying to do what they did

    Jason Sparks

    I hope you enjoyed writing it, it's a great song to be inspired to produce something, 2 years now , I will look for your novel ,give me a title

    protey117

    Great!
    There is also a novel by a norwegian novelist Johan Harstad "Buzz Aldrin, What Happened to You in All the Confusion?", where the Cardigabs & their music play an important role in the the narrative. The novel is mainly set in the Faroe Islands in the North Atlantic Ocean. It deals with a person who, instead of trying to be best, decides to be second best in life, like his hero, Buzz Aldrin, the second man on the moon. A very humane & intimate reading!

  28. Martin Del Carpio
