lyrics

walking out into the surf under a bull black moon
at the start of our ruse
tides pulled you far from land
and into my waiting hands

a hundred miles out, far from the sunny south
took your tobacco - the first night on the town
crossed county lines, that was the first time
our stars aligned and you changed my mind

show me how to receive, be a harbour for me
that’s what I need
i want for your body to know my body
finally

I’ll keep your powder dry, clandestine
don’t go looking for signs in other men’s eyes
get a clean kill in your back hills
and you know I will be a swift arrow

oh blackwaterfoot, do you see me?
believe me, blackwaterfoot
all my youth I have wasted
chasing blackwaterfoot

oh blackwaterfoot, do you see me?
believe me blackwaterfoot
all my youth I have wasted away
chasing blackwaterfoot

it was hard for me to open, until I was broken
like a wave
smouldering with lust, but too soon to trust
the way that you move

up in your hay loft with the tarantulas
thinking of africa in the ritual smoke
feel the muscle tense, dripping a sweet sweat
dropping my defense, now we’re alone

break from the reigns, leave me for dead again
such a damn shame that we play these games
stand not amazed, put on a good face
give me one last taste, then I’ll go go go

blackwaterfoot, do you see me?
believe me, blackwaterfoot
all my youth I have wasted
chasing blackwaterfoot

oh blackwaterfoot, do you see me?
believe me blackwaterfoot
all my youth I have wasted away
chasing blackwaterfoot

running with rainclouds in my shoes
distant thunder following your hurricane
rubbing the salt into the wound (womb)
hollow harvest of my muse

and she's always on my mind
haunting beauty, holy hebridean eyes
and her body is a cave
hiding the truth I cannot say
