about

"The brilliant title track is another matter entirely. Brimming with evocatively dark, poetic and occasionally overtly sexual imagery, it is handled wonderfully and as such could actually . . . almost have come from the pen of [Nick] Cave." - Americana-UK

lyrics

You buried me alive on the beach when we were five
You patted down the sand with your smooth innocent hands
You left me there to burn as you splashed among the shallows
My head could barely turn but I could see your sunshine halo

I knew I could escape but I liked to be your prisoner
I knew right from the start you had captured my heart

Then when we were twelve you met Tom, he was thirteen
He took you to the woods where he thought you’d not be seen
I followed you on down past the stream and through the trees
You looked me in the eye as he knelt between your knees

Sarah, won’t you come live in this house that I built for you
Give yourself to me and I will still love you tomorrow

When we were sixteen the world left us alone together
Our ties they bind us tight, blood is stronger than the weather
She liked to keep me bound as she took her long slow pleasure
She’d leave me there to burn but I learned to love my tethers

Sister Sarah, won’t you come live in this house that I built for you
Give yourself to me and I will still love you tomorrow
Give yourself to me and you can bury me tomorrow

You took yourself to town dressed up in your Sunday best
And when you did return I saw grass stains on you dress
I took up the axe I use for chopping wood and killing chickens
I swung it violently and watched your blood slowly thicken
I placed you in a grave in the woods and climbed beside you
I pulled the earth over my face and thus died in your embrace
I pulled the earth over my face and thus died in your embrace

Sister Sarah, won’t you come live in this house that I built for you
Give yourself to me and I will still love you tomorrow
Give yourself to me and you can bury me tomorrow
