lyrics

the song on your breath is the arrow
the arrow has come to pierce my heart
hold me up that sacred call, the pieces break and fall
wide and flowing down into the earth

the song on your breath is the arrow
the arrow has come to pierce my heart
hold me up that sacred call, the pieces break and fall
wide and flowing down into the earth
I don't care about your fuss or fight, gonna treat you right
some say it's duty, but I know this to be my worth

Marianne, Marianne
Marianne, when I watch you sleep,
you dream a thousand miles away from me

I am the man who'd walk a thousand miles
to be the song
to be the breath
to be the arrow
gonna call that fire down into me to burn away with impunity
all that must be burned
hold me up that sacred call, the pieces break and fall
wide and flowing down into the earth
I don't care about your fuss or fight, gonna treat you right
some call it duty but I know this to be my worth

Marianne, Marianne
Marianne, when we call your name will you dream us into your dream
