SOMEDAY WE’LL LINGER IN THE SUN

Someday we'll linger in the sun

My dear friend Polly Borland sent me this clip of American folksinger and violinist Gaelynn Lea, performing her song, ‘Someday We’ll Linger in the Sun’. What a completely lovely song and such an unearthly lyric.

We walked the pier and back again
It was the most scared I've ever been
You held my hand until the end

Thank you, Polly. Such a gift at such a time! We miss you. Love, Susie x

Someday We'll Linger in the Sun

Our love's a complex vintage wine
All rotted leaves and lemon rind
I'd spit you out but now you're mine

We bit the fruit, it seemed a lie
I'll never know which way was right
Now side by side we face the night

And I love you
And I love you

We walked the pier and back again
It was the most scared I've ever been
You held my hand until the end

And I love you
And I love you

Don't tell me we've got time
The subtle thief of life
It slips away when we pay no mind

We pulled the weeds out till the dawn
Nearly too tired to carry on
Someday we'll linger in the sun

And I love you
And I love you
