about

I wrote this about all the things I would give to the ones I love after I die. Although I feel I lead a very rich and colourful life, my pockets are not so full when it comes to money. So instead of leaving dollars for my loved ones, I would give them parts of my body so they can see, hear, smell and touch all the extraordinary things I’ve experienced in my world.

“Life is short and I want you to fill it with your heart’s desire; you can make it look like anything you want, my love.”

lyrics

Fill my cup
Pour me out
On to the streets
Of this town
Drink from me
And wash your wounds
And swim inside me, nightly
By the light of the moon

Take my eyes
To see the world
And with my ears
Attend virtuous words
And use my skin
To keep you warm
For I did love you, all along
Yes all along

Chorus
I would give you my heart and my blood
And my bones and my heart and my blood and my heart
I would give you my heart and my blood
And my bones and my heart and my blood and my heart

My possessions
Spread them ‘round
My money
Use for things unfound
For there were no jewels
No arcane drawers
I was no queen
But I was yours
Yes I was yours

Chorus X 2
I would give you my heart and my blood
And my bones and my heart and my blood and my heart
I would give you my heart and my blood
And my bones and my heart and my blood and my heart

Life is short and I want you to
Fill it with your heart’s desire
You can make it look like anything you want, my love
