Baths – Yeoman Lyrics

[Intro] Oh, yeoman

[Verse 1] Man, it’s good to see you
This must be the airship
And are these your fellow crew?
Where are we headed?
I have nothing to do
Would you show me green
And would you show me blue?
We’ll follow where the moons move
You and I invent the ballroom
Placing pushpins on the star chart
Wellspring of adventure that is begging to embark

[Pre-Chorus 1] Let’s move from the stateroom, through the galley
Deck level with stars like an endless sea
Flail me out onto the false dance floor
Take my face and show me what for
Your kiss is a swell
The feeling like a buoyant waltz
Look goddamnit, no, I don’t know how
I love it though your steps are never gonna make a lick of sense

[Chorus] Left my life on the ground
To dance with you in the clouds
Forgot my life on the ground
Oh, yeoman, we’re far gone now
Oh, yeoman

[Verse 2] Let me bore you here under the Moon
Robed in the armillary room
Inert for all my years
And then fell into you
These routes that you just so ornately improvise
They’re always wild
And I don’t seem to mind
Put me to work, I want some value
I want big arms to put around you
To get lost in all your birthmarks
Wellspring of adventure that is begging to embark

[Pre-Chorus 2] Lets move from the stateroom, through the galley
Gliding in the dark on an endless sea
Catch my footing while I follow yours
Take my face and show me what for
Come, kiss me swell
The feeling like a buoyant waltz
Look, goddamnit, no, I don’t know how
I love it though your steps are never gonna make a lick of sense

[Chorus] Left my life on the ground
To dance with you in the clouds
Forgot my life on the ground
Oh, yeoman, we’re far gone now
Oh, yeoman

[Instrumental Bridge] [Pre-Chorus 2] Stateroom through the galley
Gliding in the dark on an endless sea
Catch my footing while I follow yours
Take my face and show me what for
Come, kiss me swell
The feeling like a buoyant waltz
Look goddamnit, no, I don’t know how
I love it though your steps are never gonna make a lick of sense

[Chorus] Left my life on the ground
To dance with you in the clouds
Forgot my life on the ground
Oh, yeoman, we’re far gone now
Oh, yeoman
