Lyrics for Nightshade by The Lumineers

Some of us love to think
Of life as a game
Others are born into royalty
And can never behave

Some find a freedom
Locking men in a cage, oh no
Some priest insisted
It's a test of the faith
And only holy devotion
Can keep the devils away

There's only so much
That a man can pray, oh no

Oh my love, oh my love
Spare my blood, spare my blood

I saw the footprints in the white of the snow
I counted thousands
And I was just a rider alone
Eighteen degrees and eighty miles from home, oh no

We built a wall to keep
The devils at bay
A distant army was marching
Through the night and the day
I swore an oath
And with my life I would pay, oh no

Oh my love, Oh my love
Spare my blood
Nightshade, won't you take me away
And I could hold my breath
For another day
But it was all, it was all
For the throne

We were surrounded
And the ending was near
All of the sudden, a ranger arrived
A savior appeared
Made it to safety
But the devil was here, oh no

Oh my love
Nightshade, won't you take me away
And I could hold my breath
For another day
But it was all, it was all
For the throne
