Maggie Rogers – Blood Ballet lyrics

[Verse 1]
Say it’s not so
Say your heart it wrote me letters all the time
Say it sealed them up and with your breath did sign
Them all away

[Verse 2]
Say that your notes
They were no forgery, you meant them every line
Some in meter, some in verse, and some in rhyme
Tell me you meant every word

[Post-Chorus 1]
You could cut my knees and leave me at the door
I’d still pick all your memories off our dusty floor
If you’d stay
If you’d stay

[Chorus]
Darling, just a little while
Darling, just a little while
Darling, just a little while

[Verse 3]
Tell me how you are
And I’ll write a song for every feeling I can’t name
Like we were dancing in a fucking blood ballet
It was a massacre

[Verse 4]
How’d you get away?
‘Cause oh, good heavens we abided by the night
But there are darker things than the absence of light
And they still creak through our halls

[Post-Chorus 2]
I would build a city out of you and me
There would be crime, but still a local grocery
If you’d stay
If you’d stay

[Chorus]
Darling, just a little while
Darling, just a little while
Darling, just a little while

[Outro]
A little while
A little while
A little while
Darling, just a little while
