Andrew bird - Encircle my love

I was born a rake & a rambling boy
Thru many strong cities there I've been
I sailed this world, sailed it round & round
Encircle My Love, Encircle My Love

And at the ends of the Earth, I'll tell you what I found
16 horses & a golden crown
Tip away from the sun, let it rain from above
Encircle My Love, Encircle My Love


Once I longed to say goodbye
Was the leaving brought me peace
To this I cannot lie
Now I'm just a poor boy
So far from home am I
And I just want to hold you
In my arms before I die

And when I'm gone go & bury me deep
Place a marble stone neath my head & feet
And on my grave place the wings of a dove
Encircle My Love, Encircle My Love
