lyrics

I used to be afraid of your kind when i was just a child
You’d spin homes in the corners of my room,
I wished that you’d just go away

It seemed a crime to dust them out
those pretty patterns sown from the strongest silk
it’s more than just a web to you

That’s when i saw you
crawling in the corner of a cafe
You shy away as I approach you
Eyes so wide upon your pretty face

then something clicks inside and suddenly i understand
It was always you afraid of me
Why was i ever afraid of you?

I’ll never stamp you out
But i’ll let you walk over my heart
With every one of your 8 limbs

Spin us a web so we can fly away just
Catch the breezy summers wind
On a single silk thread parachute

We’ll make a new home everyday
travel the world together
Build a restaurant every evening
Just to catch a meal for two

And after that you’ll wrap me up nice and warm and tight
And the stars will watch us as we sleep
Just please don’t mistake me for your morning meal

I’ll hold you in my arms
And you’ll hold me in whichever ones you want
I feel so safe here

I often wondered why you have so many eyes,
But now i know that two’s just not enough
for the time i spend with you

I’ll never stamp you out
But i’ll let you walk over my heart
With every one of your 8 limbs

Spin us a web so we can fly away just
Catch the breezy summers wind
On a single silk thread parachute

Used to be an arachnophobia
But now I won’t let anyone tell you that you’re ugly
You’ll always be beautiful to me.

I’ll never stamp you out
But i’ll let you walk over my heart
With every one of your 8 limbs

Spin us a web so we can fly away just
Catch the breezy summers wind
On a single silk thread parachute

I’ll never stamp you out
But i’ll let you walk over my heart
With every one of your 8 limbs

Spin us a web so we can fly away just
Catch the breezy summers wind
On a single silk thread parachute
