Alt-J – Pleader (Relaxer Album)


To be told of such hills
Where the wild roses pray
Like the nightingales, we sing
How green, how green was my valley?
Soft, like coming rain
[Verse 1]
Such heat from pride
Call to arms these harmonies!
How green, how green was my valley?
Victoria! Victoria!
How green, how green was my valley?
How green, how green was my valley?
[Verse 3]
How green, how green was my valley?
Soft, like Bronwen
Clear softness in our hymn
How green, how green was my valley?
And in happy agony we sing

Oh, your deeps and your shades
[Verse 2]
To be held in such spots
To behold such warmth
Voices our queen might envy
How green, how green was my valley?

Glorious, the voice of man!
