Story Behind the Song

"Nobody will ever love again when they know what love entails"

Lyrics

Oh god, you are a tricky one
Like the fulsome, rolling sea
Got a whole lot of anger behind my tongue
And I'm saving it all for thee

What's the good of this world that you brought me to
If you fill up my eyes with tears
When I'm deaf to the birds and your trembling words
For the curses that fill my ears

And lord you've made me travel
Till my boots wore through at the heels
But to shake his love must I truly lie
And be broken upon your wheel?

I will roll on down like a thundercloud
All full of light and of rain
But when it's spent, each increment
Comes back to me again.

Oh god, you know the heart of me
Is built from solid stuff
I may seem to crumble like the sand
But like glass I break and I cut

And the thousand pieces of my heart
That were all trodden down in the dirt
They may rise up like a bird in flight
But they never can shake this hurt.

Oh god, you are a tricky one
Like the salt sea in my ears
And when I die if I come to you
There'll be questions in my tears

What's the good of this world that you brought me to
If the good in a man's so frail
Nobody will ever love again
When they know what love entails

(So put your fingers to your lips...
Lest you tell what love entails...)
