Lisa Hannigan Performs "Lille"

    He went to sea for the day
    He wanted to know what to say
    When he's asked what he'd done
    In the past to someone
    That he loves endlessly
    Now she's gone, so is he

    I went to war every morning
    I lost my way but now I'm following
    What you said in my arms
    What I read in the charms
    That I love durably
    Now it's dead and gone and I am free
    I went to sleep for the daytime
    I shut my eyes to the sunshine
    Turned my head away from the noise
    Bruise and drip decay of childish toys
    That I loved arguably
    All our labouring gone to seed

    Went out to play for the evening
    We wanted to hold onto the feeling
    On the stretch in the sun
    And our breathlessness as we run
    To the beach endlessly
    As the sun creeps up on the sea
