Sufjan Stevens – Will Anybody Ever Love Me? Lyrics

Will Anybody Ever Love Me? Lyrics by Sufjan Stevens

Chase away my heart and heartache
Run me over, throw me over, cast me out
Find a river running to the west wind
Just above the shoreline
You will see a cloud

Tie me to a tiny wooden raft
Burn my body, point me to the undertow
Push me off into the void at last
Watch me drift and watch me struggle
let me go… ’cause I really wanna know:

Will anybody every love me?
For good reasons
Without grievance, not for sport
Will anybody every love me?
In every season
Pledge allegiance to my heart
Pledge allegiance to my burning heart

Hello wildness please forgive me now
For the heartache and the misery I create
Take my suffering as I take my vow
Wash me now, anoint me
With that golden blade

Tie me to the final wooden stake
Burn my body, celebrate the afterglow
Wash away the summer sins I made
Watch me drift and
Watch me struggle, let me go
’cause I really wanna know:

Will anybody every love me?
For good reasons
Without grievance, not for sport
Will anybody every love me?
In every season
Pledge allegiance to my heart
Pledge allegiance to my burning heart
