Jehnny Beth – French Countryside Lyrics

If I ever see the French countryside again
On my way out of this aeroplane
I will ask you to take me back to that place by the river where we can be ourselves
Try a little harder
Oh my love don’t desert me now
I’ve been figuring out what we talked about and how much I need to change

I’ll draw your body in the air
I’ll whisper your name everywhere
And I’ll sing my songs every night, defeat my fears, jump over fires
I’ll be more self-disciplined, I’ll sacrifice for you
I’ll stay close to our love like bees over their hives

If I ever see the French countryside again
On my way out of this aeroplane
I know interrupted it [?] the love was always there
It’s hard sometimes to show you really care
Oh my love don’t deserve you now

‘Cause all my life I’ve been hanging around the wrong places
All my life I’m here at last telling you I ain’t changing
If you wait for me I will show you

I’ll draw your body in the air
I’ll whisper your name everywhere
And I’ll sing my songs every night, defeat my fears, jump over fires
I’ll be more self-disciplined, I’ll sacrifice for you
I’ll stay close to our love like bees over their hives

Oh, I will open my hands to catch the raindrops
If I ever see the French countryside again

If I ever see the French countryside again
On my way out of this aeroplane
I will ask you to take me back to that place by the river where we can be ourselves
Try a little harder
Oh my love don’t desert me now
I’ve been figuring out what we talked about and how much I need to change

I’ll draw your body in the air
I’ll whisper your name everywhere
And I’ll sing my songs every night, defeat my fears, jump over fires
I’ll be more self-disciplined, I’ll sacrifice for you
I’ll stay close to our love like bees over their hives

If I ever see the French countryside again
On my way out of this aeroplane
I know interrupted it [?] the love was always there
It’s hard sometimes to show you really care
Oh my love don’t deserve you now

‘Cause all my life I’ve been hanging around the wrong places
All my life I’m here at last telling you I ain’t changing
If you wait for me I will show you

I’ll draw your body in the air
I’ll whisper your name everywhere
And I’ll sing my songs every night, defeat my fears, jump over fires
I’ll be more self-disciplined, I’ll sacrifice for you
I’ll stay close to our love like bees over their hives

Oh, I will open my hands to catch the raindrops
If I ever see the French countryside again
