Track Name: Blood and Time
He'll patronise
She'll overstate
He'll polarise
She'll aggravate

He'll act the warrior
She'll be his shield
He'll take for granted
She won't retreat

If you were not there to tighten
All my knots would come undone
While all are views might not align
Your blood is my blood
My time is your time

And your crutch is my crutch
And my crime is your crime
And your love is my love
And my mind is your mind
And he'll learn her patience
And she'll learn to opine
And your blood is my blood
And my time is your time

If you were not there to tighten
All my knots would come undone
