Husk Lyrics – Keaton Henson

It seems like yesterday
You took my breath away
How could the world still turn?
We’re not what we thought we were

Must you be leavin’ so soon, so soon, so soon, oh?
I was just fallin’ for you, for you, for you
I’m sorry I’m late, I was ablaze
I was just starting on hopin’ you’d stay
Must you be leavin’ so soon, soon?

The death of a century
Has sunken its teeth in me
How the hands of the clock
Are beating to death
Our memory

I’m older than the man
I was when I began
What use is breathing in
If I’m nothing more than skin?

Must you be leavin’ so soon, so soon, so soon, oh?
I was just fallin’ for you, for you, for you now
I held my tongue when we were young
Holdin’ my horses but jumpin’ the gun
I must be aging now too, too

The death of a century
Has sunken its teeth in me
How the hands of the clock
Are beating to death
Our memories

Must you be leaving so soon, so soon, so soon?
