    "Flesh" Lyrics

    David Gray

    As the bell must strike the hour
    As the west must stab the sun
    So our hearts must heed the flow of deeper tides that run
    Far beyond this bare indifference
    That prosperity esteems
    Where the spirit raves and dances
    Through our very veins

    At winter's edge you found me
    By the fields of wild gold
    My hands still filled with ashes
    From fires long cold

    You pulled me from the wreckage of bitterness and blame
    Flung open the page
    And put some flesh on the bones of my dreams

    On the streets the blossom snowing
    and the drum is beating slow
    To hear you speak so clear
    Well I'm slicing through the fear
    Setting all the beacons blazing, baby oh
    It's staring out plainer than ever
    Brighter than all the fools' gold that gleams
    It's simply now or never
    Putting flesh on the bones of my dreams

    Putting flesh on the bones of my dreams
    Putting flesh on the bones of my dreams

    And they can plunder the cave of sorrows
    They can strip the gallery bare
    Try to build a fence around the visions
    In our heads, choke every spark
    In a cloak of despair
    But we got something they can't stifle
    With their price tags and picture frames
    Got a flower for every rifle
    Putting flesh on the bones of my dreams
