Lyrics

Protection Spells - 2000 Secretly Canadian

Trouble Will Find You
trouble will find you
it's hard work to avoid you
it is the hardest work I know (x2)
whatever we are now, seem hardly aware
of what we're used to being
of what we planned on being
and I'd trade it all (x2)
for you to come home (x2)

The Moon Undoes It All
in the dusk
bloody mane and tail
in the dawn
cold that aches in his belly
the sun that scarred his back
it was doubtful it would end (x2)
I came here out of common sense
the future enough behind me
and I stay here out of another sense
with the future enough in front of me
this one walks alone (x3)
the silver wind makes a desperate effort to say
the moon undoes it all (x2)
this belongs to no one (x3)
but you (x2)

Darkness that Strong
darkness that oblique, darkness that strong
the moon in it's cradle is casual is distinct
from the stars (x2)
they are his father upon the land
and I made an estimate of the secret laid plan
and I make an estimate of the secret that they bare
when they are down here
darkness that oblique, darkness that strong (x2)
and that is my report( x2)

Keep Only One Of Us Free
the space you gave to me
you marked out dividing lines
keep only one of us free (x2)
the frame that held me (x2)
has rotted away (x2)
now we are paired again
back with friction (x3)
and black angel falls in with one of us again
and light is barely breathing its breath between us
between black angel black angel black
we have lost what we had marked
out for ambition (x2)
now only one of us are free
only one of us are free (x2)

The World At The End Of The World
it runs the length of the world (x2)
and it gets heavy like woman's secret (x2)
and full of sorrow like a sudden thing
the ancestors of shadow the ancestors of smoke
the memory at night
the strength to face the world at the edge of the world (x2)

Fire On The Shore
shut you eyes across the uneven road
the sun shuts his eyes (x2)
he is asking everywhere for you (x2)
but I keep a wide eye open to the flame (x2)
tonight there is a fire (x2)
tonight there is a fire on the Spanish shore (x2)
the fire is not my home it has come to be my home
and if the fire is not my home it has come to mean my home

Mighty Like Love, Mighty Like Sorrow
a stray star yielding on her back
as much as she can
it is so hard (x2)
a stray star yielding on her back
do not leave me (x2)
it is dull hot hours
it is hurting like the winter
stars do spangle the sky here
and the moon is burning between us (x2)
and it is so hard (x2)
the weight of the distance comes down between us
mighty like love and mighty like sorrow

The One Red Star
blue news in the heart
you are the one red sister star
you are the flash across the water
one red sister star
black has marked the distance
black has marked out all the miles
across the world from you (x2)
and I'm afraid right down the middle
I am afraid right down the middle
it is black it is yellow
and it is black, Pittsburgh yellow
your soul the one red star (x2)
I am the one red star sister star (x2)

Whenever I Have Done A Thing In Flames
in any house in the world there is background of flames
in any house in the world there is background of storms
and any house in the world a winter spent alone
wherever I have done a thing for love it has ruined me
rebuild the day out of flames
rebuild the day out of the silence of that day
I'm going to choose, I will have to choose
whenever I have done a thing in flames (x2)
it has saved me
