Beth Orton

Beth Orton (born Elizabeth Caroline Orton, 14 December 1970) is a BRIT Award–winning English singer-songwriter, known for her 'folktronica' sound, which mixes elements of folk and electronica.

There is that I can only hear by the moon
I lay still enough to hear the trees grow
I listen for the creak of their thoughts
And I hear your corduroy legs running up the stairs
And all the kindest words are held in reserve
For you
And all my gentlest thoughts
A hand reaches to me 
Across the banished sea
And holds me 
Holds me holding you
It holds me 
Holding you
There is that I can only hear by the moon
I lay still enough to hear the trees grow
I listen for the creak of their thoughts
And all the wisdom their age bestows
I hear your corduroy legs running up the stairs
All the kindest words reserved
For you
All my gentlest thoughts
Are yours
A hand reaches out to me 
Across the vanished sea
And holds me
Holding you
Holding me
Holds me 
Holding you
