Freaky Teeth - Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds

When the rain came falling down
On the darkness at the edge of town
Where they came to steal the lightning from the sky

The pushing had come to shove
And your love might not be enough
To free you from the fears that paralyse

Yet they used to love you for the way you sang your soul
Now they've come to claim you for the night
The ghosts have come to steal the light out of your eyes

Well your momma and your wife
Cut your heart out with a knife
And they left you for the dogs to lick your bones
They made you cry the rain
But they loved you just the same
Before your God, and the devil, took your soul

Tell me what did you bequeath
To the girl with the freaky teeth
When she showed you things she'd stolen from the queen
She took out your heart's desire
Then she danced back into the fire
With the holy men who'd stole your tambourine

Yet they used to love you for the way you sang your soul
Now they've come to claim you for the night
The ghosts have come to steal the light out of your eyes

Well your momma and your wife
Cut your heart out with a knife
And they left you for the dogs to lick your bones
They made you cry the rain
But they loved you just the same
Before your God, and the devil, took your soul
[x2]

Before your God, and the devil, took your soul [x3]
