Lhasa de Sela — “Anywhere on this Road”
I love a man, Who's afraid of me, He believes if he doesn't, Stand guard with a knife, I'll make him my slave, For the rest of his life.
Here's the complete lyrics.
I live in this country now, I'm called by this name. I speak this language, It's not quite the same. For no other reason, Than this it's my home. And the places I used to be, far from are gone.
▲1≔ You've travelled this long, You just have to go on. Don't even look back to see, How far you've come. Though your body is bending, Under the load. There is nowhere to stop, Anywhere on this road.
My heart is breaking up, I cannot sleep. I love a man, Who's afraid of me. He believes if he doesn't, Stand guard with a knife. I'll make him my slave, For the rest of his life.
I love this hour, when, the tide is just turning. There will be an end, to the longing and yearning. If I can stand up, to angels and men. I'll never get swallowed In darkness again.
