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 »

Watching the sun come up over Mount Washington
Forever testing your intention
Watching the sun going down over some distant town
And why you sing you never could say

Hate causes any question
To do it to before it's done unto you
Hate causes any question
Your love out of frame
And nobody can keep you
From the one you know you are
Nobody to steer the way you sway
The way you walk
May there never be a time
That you don't live through
May there never be a time
That you don't walk through

Be a star
Be an altar
And I will hang it on you

Watching the sun come up over St. Jude Street
Forever testing your invention
Watching the sun going down over Mount Zion
And once awake you never sleep on

Hate  causes every question
To do unto as you'd have done by you
It ain't 'cause you ever question
Your love out of view
And nobody can keep you
From the ones you know you love
Nobody to steer the way you sway
The way you walk
May there never be a time
That you don't live through
May there never be a time
That you don't walk through

Be a star
Be an altar
And I will hang it on you

You are, you are
Belonging to the unknown
You are, you are
Belonging into the unknown
May there never be a time
That I don't love you
May there never be a time
That you don't pull through

[Repeat: x2]
Be a star
Be an altar
And I will hang it on you
