Keaton Henson – While I Can Lyrics

While I Can Lyrics – Keaton Henson

While my lungs have breath to sing for you
And I have fingers left to cling to you
While my thoughts are making any sense
While I’m living in the present tense
I will wake up on the wrong side of the modern
Will it hold on to your fingers like a seat belt
While my legs can’t stand

I wanna love you while I can

While my spine can still stand up for us
Before the bones inside me turn to dust
While my skin can hold the cells of you
I will make a mess of telling you
Until the rebirth comes to scare you
Cut me out I fucking dare you
I’m a master of denial
While I still have teeth to smile
I will wear it like a new spade
Like an actor wears a new name
If you cast me I will be there
I will take the lead

I wanna tell you while I breathe

I want a kid or two
I wanna live with you
I wanna live with you till we die
I want a kid or two
I wanna live with you
I wanna live with you till we die
I want a kid or two
I wanna live with you
I wanna live with you till we die
