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. She was initially recognised for her collaborations with William Orbit and the Chemical Brothers in the mid 1990s. However, these were not Orton's first recordings. She had released a solo album, Superpinkymandy, in 1993. Since the album was only released in Japan, it went largely unnoticed by international audiences. Her second solo album, Trailer Park, garnered much critical acclaim in 1996. Orton developed a devoted audience with the release of the albums Central Reservation (1999) and the 2002 UK top 10 album, Daybreaker. In her 2006 release, Comfort of Strangers, s… more »

You touched my hand
Said, "Follow me
I'll be your eyes when you cannot see"
Now the only blindness that I'm gonna choose
Is ignorance to all your misuse

There was a time when you held all the cards
And you dealt them all evenly 'cause I couldn't see
You read my mind
Left yourself so hard to find
I thought you knew me better than I knew myself

Spend your time cutting me down
When it's plain to see it's faith that will carry
Spend your time cutting me down
When it's plain to see it's faith that will carry
Spend your time cutting me down [you touched my hand]
When it's plain to see it's faith that will carry
Spend your time cutting me down [I'll be your eyes]
When it's plain to see it's faith that will carry

I could try talkin' to you but I already learned all I need to
Spend your time cutting me down
Don't listen to a word then you throw me a frown
To catch the eye of a stranger is nothing new
I was just waitin' for something to do
It was a twisted pair but now I'm through

Spend your time cutting me down [you touched my hand]
When it's plain to see it's faith that will carry [said it's faith that will carry]
Spend your time cutting me down [I'll be your eyes]
When it's plain to see it's faith that will carry
Spend your time cutting me down [you read my mind]
When it's plain to see it's faith that will carry [left yourself so hard to find]
Spend your time cutting me down [I thought you knew me better]
When it's plain to see it's faith that will carry [than I knew myself]

You touched my hand
Said, "Follow me
I'll be your eyes when you cannot see"
Now the only blindness that I'm gonna choose
Is ignorance to all your misuse

It's faith that will carry
It's faith that will carry

You read my mind
Left yourself so hard to find
I thought you knew me better than I knew myself

Spend your time cutting me down
When it's plain to see it's faith that will carry
Spend your time cutting me down
When it's plain to see it's faith that will carry
Spend your time cutting me down [you touched my hand]
When it's plain to see it's faith that will carry [said, "Follow me]
Spend your time cutting me down [I'll be your eyes"]
When it's plain to see it's faith that will carry
Spend your time cutting me down [you read my mind]
When it's plain to see it's faith that will carry [left yourself so hard to find]
Spend your time cutting me down [I thought you knew me better]
When it's plain to see it's faith that will carry [than I knew myself]

You touched my hand
Said, "Follow me
I'll be your eyes when it's plain to see it's faith that will carry"
