Angel Olsen Safe In The Womb Lyrics

I was safe when I was in the womb

I was warm when I was wrestling

To get out

Out of the flesh

And the sound of the world filled easily

And the eyes above watched eagerly

In the hopes of the nave

In the hopes of a change

It was all bright, clear

It was all bright, clear

Deep in the nest of an endless dream

When a stranger thought becomes of me

It can slowly turn my blood

Just as the rings around our ever burning sun

Eventually wilt a once freshly blooming bud

It was all bright, clear

Oh, it was all bright, clear

Subtlely shedding back the years

And after it all we soon disappear

Yes, into the dark depths we all soon disappear

Out of this labyrinth that makes out/our, our world

How do we ever know the light inside ourselves?

To know that the skin that we wear is raw

That we can be anything if we know anything at all

Yes, we can be anything if we know anything at all

Bright, clear

And it was bright, clear
