lyrics

Anyone But Yourself

You ran into the water to turn into a whale
But the sea did not change you
Spat you out onto the shale
You ran into a cornfield
To hide inside its maize
House your cathedral of suffering
In the yellow smiling sway

Why be anyone but yourself Lucy?
Why be anyone but yourself

You ran into the forest
To cling to your favourite tree
Tried to wind yourself around them
Ivy tendril to tender leaf
But the tree will not change you, no
It will not take your spoor
You wither and flounder
A twisted shoot on the forest floor

Why be anyone but yourself Lucy?
Why be anyone but yourself

Your perfect body is not welcomed
In this house that you call home
So come here and rest with me
In these sheets that I have sown

Don't lose faith in the water Lucy
Don't lose yourself in the sea
Don't lose faith in the forest
Don't lose your life in the trees
I cannot believe that you would be anyone but yourself
In these fields

But yourself
