—The Wanting Comes In Waves/Repaid

"The Wanting Comes in Waves/ Repaid" by The Decemberists

William:
Mother, I can hear your footfall now
Soft disturbance in the dead fall
How it precedes you like a black smoke, oh
Still the wanting comes in waves

You delivered me from danger then
Pulled my cradle from the reedy glen
Swore to save me from the world of men
Still the wanting comes in waves
And the wanting comes in waves
And I want this night
And I want this night, ah, oh

Queen:
How I made you, I wrought you, I pulled you
From ore I labored you
From cancer I cradled you
And now, this is how I am repaid
This is how I am repaid

Remember when I found you
The miseries that hounded you
And I gave you motion, anointed you with lotions
And now, this is how I am repaid
This is how I am repaid

William:
Mother hear this proposition right
Grant me freedom to enjoy this night
And I’ll return to you at break of light
For the wanting comes in waves, in waves, in waves
Still the wanting comes in waves
Still the wanting comes in waves
Still the wanting comes in waves
And you owe me life
And you owe me life, ah, oh

Queen:
And if I grant you this favor, to hand you
Your life for the evening I will retake by morning
And so consider it your debt repaid
Consider it your debt repaid, repaid, repaid
