Lyrics - CROSS YOUR FINGERS

Laura Marling at St Philips with St Stephens Church, Salford, on 10 June 2008

CROSS YOUR FINGERS

Laura Marling

Look down on the body that you have grown,
Four mountains stand around you
they're not your own.
And light squares and bodies are all you see
Since you broke down
Since I broke down
Since we broke down

So I jumped into my grave and died,
And on your word I gave up my whole life for you,
And I was reborn bigger and stronger
and less alive
I, I, I, I, I, I, I

Cross your fingers hold your toes,
we're all going to die when the building blows,
Cross your fingers hold your toes,
we're all going to die when the building blows,
And the house that you were born in is crumbling at the corner,
Sagging skin and feet of crows, feet of crows.

Oh you'll jump into your grave and die
And on my words you'll give up your whole life for me
And you'll be reborn big and stronger
and less alive
I, I, I, I, I, I, I
