Joe Henry – Now And Never Lyrics

By Azlyrics

Roses, take your cover—
Wild beauty travels south;
Truth will out but always speaks
From both sides of her mouth
She’s a stone in water
She’s a rising bell—
The invention of another
I make no assumptions what she’ll tell

For now, the word is moving through, sliding in beside of you;
You disappear –the both, you do:
One into the other

The jailer’s singing down the halls his lonesome song of love; tapping like a miner with his keys on pipes above

A lantern revolution
We’re bright without a line— but I make no assumptions now just what my light will find

For now, the dark is moving through, sliding in beside of you;
You disappear –the both, you do:
One into the other

The dead will close their bottle eyes of their own stubborn accord, escaping by the roof the darkest pleasures of the lord

I pay my debt to mercy
With all of it come my way— I make no assumptions now what more I’m due today

For now, time is moving through, sliding in beside of you;
You disappear –the both, you do: one into the other
