Editors – Bones (Glastonbury 2007)


How can you always be late for your arrival?
You know I’d forgive you every single time

Retreat, retreat
I’ve fallen at the low tide
Oh retreat, retreat
And meet me by the quayside

In the end all you can hope for
Is the love you felt to equal the pain you’ve gone through

Are your eyes showing off for mine
Your face in my hands is everything that I need

The system’s put in place, put there to protect us
For you I’d throw a lifeline every time

Oh Retreat, retreat
I’ve fallen at the low tide
Now retreat, retreat
And meet me by the quayside

In the end all you can hope for
Is the love you felt to equal the pain you’ve gone through

Are your eyes showing off for mine
Your face in my hands is everything that I need

Bones, starved of flesh
Surround your aching heart
Full of love

Oh bones, starved of flesh
Surround your aching heart
Full of love

Bones, starved of flesh
Surround your aching heart

Bones

Oh bones

I watch as your eyes show off for mine
I watch as your eyes show off
I watch as your eyes show off for mine
I watch as your eyes show off

Editors (An End has a Start)

I don’t think that it’s
Gonna rain again today
There’s a devil at your side
But an angel on her way

Someone hit the light
‘Cause there’s more here to be seen
When you caught my eye
I saw everywhere I’d been
And wanna go to

You came on your own
That’s how you’ll leave
With hope in your hands
And air to breathe

I won’t disappoint you
As you fall apart
Some things should be simple
Even an end has a start

Someone hit the light
‘Cause there’s more here to be seen
When you caught my eye
I saw everywhere I’d been
And wanna go to

You came on your own
That’s how you’ll leave
With hope in your hands
And air to breathe

You lose everything
By the end
Still my broken limbs
You find time to mend

More and more people
I know are getting ill
Pull something good from
The ashes now be still

You came on your own
That’s how you’ll leave
With hope in your hands
And air to breathe

You lose everything
By the end
Still my broken limbs
You choose to mend

You came on your own
That’s how you’ll leave
You came on your own
That’s how you’ll leave

You came on your own

You came on your own
