  • "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
