The Civil Wars — Birds of a Feather lyrics

Where she walks, no flowers bloom
He's the one I see right through
She's the absinthe on my lips
The splinter in my fingertip

But who could do without you?
And who could do without you?
[ Lyrics from: http://www.lyricsty.com/the-civil-wars-birds-of-a-feather-lyrics.html ]
She's the sea I'm sinkin' in
He's the ink under my skin
Sometimes I cain't tell where I am
Where I leave off and he begins

But who could do without you?
And who could do without you?

Oh, we're a pretty, pretty pair
Yes, we are
All, all the king's horses
And all of his men
Couldn't tear us apart, ooh aah ooh

Dancing with a ball and chain
Through it all we still remain
Butterflies around a flame
Till ashes, ashes, we fade away

Songwriters: Williams, Joy / White, John
