Sufjan Stevens – Drawn to the Blood — The Greatest Gift Lyrics

The Greatest Gift by Sufjan Stevens
Released : 2017


I’m drawn to the blood
The flight of a one-winged dove
How? How did this happen?
How? How did this happen?

The strength of his arm
The father of my last child
How? Head of a rabbit
How? Head of a rabbit

For my prayer has always been love
What did I do to deserve this?

With blood on my sleeve
Delilah, avenge my grief
How? God of Elijah
How? God of Elijah

As fire to the sun
Tell me what I have done
How? Heart of a dragon
How? Heart of a dragon

For my prayer has always been love
What did I do to deserve this now?
(What did I do to deserve this now?)
How did this happen?

How did this happen? [x18]
(What did I do)
