Lyrics

Parasol

when I come to terms
to terms with this
when I come to terms
with this
when I come to terms
to terms with this
my world will change
for me
I haven’t moved since
the call came
since the call came
I haven’t moved
I stare at the wall
knowing on the other side
the storm that waits for me

then the Seated Woman
with a Parasol
may be the only one
you can’t Betray
if I’m the Seated Woman
with a Parasol
I will be safe
in my frame

I have no need
for a sea view
for a sea view
I have no need
I have my little
pleasures
this wall being one of these

when I come to terms
to terms with this
when I come to terms
with this
when I come to terms
with this whip lash
of Silk on wool embroidery

then the Seated Woman
with a Parasol
may be the only one
you can’t betray
if I’m the Seated Woman
with a Parasol
I will be safe
in my frame
I will be safe
in my frame
in your House
in your frame
