Sweetest Decline

(Beth Orton)

Lyrics

She weaves secrets in her hair
The whispers are not hers to share
She's deep as a well
She's deep as a well

Another day wastes away
And my heart sinks with the sun
A new days dawning
And a new day has not yet begun

So anyway
There I was
Just sitting on your porch
Drinking in the sweetest decline
The sweetest decline
Sober mind

What's the use in regrets
They're just things we haven't done yet
What are regrets
They're just lessons we haven't learned yet

Another day draws away
And my heart sinks with the sun
Its like catching snow on my tongue
Its like catching snow on my tongue

So anyway
There I was
Just sitting on your porch
Drink in the sweetest decline
The sweetest decline
Sober mind

What are regrets
What are regrets
They're just lessons we haven't learned yet
Its like catching snow on your tongue
You can't pin this butterfly down
Can't pin this butterfly down
