Baths – Abscond Lyrics

SHARE
[Verse 1] If I scale the castle wall, will that do?
Win your affection if I fall, call truce
We boys like bells, like gongs that put the town into a song

[Refrain] Get used to the wrongs I’m gonna do for you
Get used to the wrong I’m gonna do to you when you ask

[Verse 2] Your move
Won’t you come down from your chambers and speak?
Nightgown and candle down the staircase to me
We boys like birds, our tongues and words the guards have never heard

[Refrain] Get used to the wrongs I’m gonna do for you
Get used to the wrong I’m gonna do to you when you ask

[Chorus 1] Horseback in the middle of the night
I know a route out we could be far enough by daylight
Pack quickly, be discreet beneath the night sky
Sweet veil of our relief, we’re gone
You’re the ire of your father but the other half of me

[Verse 3] Would I define young love in a rhyme, would that suit?
We could abscond, be gone, on our way
We boys like bells, like gongs that put the town into a song

[Refrain] Get used to the wrongs I’m gonna do for you
Get used to the wrong I’m gonna do to you when you ask

[Verse 2] Your move
Won’t you come down from your chambers and speak?
Nightgown and candle down the staircase to me
We boys like birds, our tongues, and words, the guards have never heard

[Refrain] Get used to the wrongs I’m gonna do for you
Get used to the wrong I’m gonna do to you when you ask

[Interlude] Do you have everything?

[Chorus 2] Horseback in the middle of the night
I know a route out, we could be far enough by daylight
Pack quickly, be discreet beneath the night sky
Sweet will of our relief, we’re gone
You’re the ire of your father but the other half of me
Horseback in the middle of the night
You’re the ire of your father but the other half of me
I know a route out, we could be far enough by daylight
You’re the ire of your father but the other half of me
Pack quickly, be discreet beneath the night sky
You’re the ire of your father but the other half of me
Sweet will of our relief, we’re gone, gone, gone
You’re the ire of your father but the other half of me
