"The Dancer"-Polly Jean Harvey


He came riding in fast
like a pheonix
out of fireflames
He came dressed in black
with a cross bearing my name
He came bathed in light
and splendor
and glory
I can't believe what the lord
has finally sent me

He said dance for me Venchoula genteel
He said laugh for awhile I can make your heart feel
He said fly with me touch the face of the true god
Then cry with joy at the death of my love
'cause I've prayed days
I've prayed nights
for the lord just to
send me down some sign
'cause I've looked long
I've looked far
to bring peace to my black and empty heart

My love will stay to the river that would run dry
My love lasts long as a sunshine blue sky
I love him longer as each damn day goes
That man is gone and heaven only knows
'cause I've cried days
I've cried nights
for the lord just to send me down some sign
Is he near
Is he far
bring peace to my black and empty heart
so long day
so long night
Oh lord be with me tonight
Is he near?
Is he far?
Bring peace to my black and empty heart
