Los Campesinos! – Little Mouth Lyrics

Little mouth, little doubts,
and now your spittle’s1 sowing the seeds2
We should be led in flower bed,
Not in your head space pulling up weeds3
Dirty hands, the offer stands
Leant on two crutches bowed at the knees,4
but if you build a home from human bones5
You’re gonna end up in the debris6

I feel such a long way from you
Everything we seem to undo,7
Every single hour feels like two,8
And I feel such a LONG WAY FROM YOU

Little mouth, little droughts
Your throat as dry as a midsummer’s stream9
Under duress, I’d cross my chest10
To stop my sins bursting out at the seams11
Cross your heart, that after dark
It isn’t only your eyes that’ll gleam12
‘Cause if you shroud your fire, behind barbed wire
You’re gonna end up as chickenfeed13

I feel such a long way from you
Everything we seem to undo,
Every single hour feels like two,
And I feel such a LONG WAY FROM YOU
(x2)14
