Silver

Written By: Catself (real name: Agnieszka Holm)

Give me a silver mandolin
Give me a silver spoon
And all that I’ve gathered,
All my lucky tools.

Give me a silver lining,
The bonnet I was born in,
And all that I borrowed,
All that I owed.

Put it all in a silver case
And the case in a silver van,
Drive it to the river,
Load up the canoe.

Lay me on a silver blanket,
Lay me face down,
So that my face faces
The flowing current.

Not the ruby of the rose,
Not the gold of the sun,
Not the copper of the fox,
It’s silver that is mine.

I see silver, silver skies
And silver, silver water
With my silver eyes
I’m looking

Up

I was taken by surprise

So give me a silver mandolin,
Give me a silver spoon
and all that I’ve gathered,
All my lucky tools.

Give me a silver blanket,
The bonnet I was born in
And put the arrow that pierced my lung
On top of my belongings.

Tuck it all in a silver case
And the case in a silver van,
Drive it to the river,
Load up the canoe.

Lay me on a silver blanket,
Lay me face down,
So that my face faces
The flowing current.

I

I was shot from the back.
