>m. ward – “fisher of men”

M Ward’s Hold Time has a lot to like. It has a traces of country, gospel and folk all with a smart indie sensibility. Fisher of Men is one of my favorites…

Fisher of Men

holdtime

He tied a feather to the hook for to get you to look
And by the time you know what took you, you already took
He’s got a line in the water, he’s a fisher of men

He put the thorns on the rose for to get you to bleed
And by the time you know what stuck you, the pain’s in deep
He’s got a line in the water, he’s a fisher of men
He’s got a lot on the line, he’s a fisher of men

He’s a fisher of men and he’s wise as a prize fighter
He’s like a soul miner mining souls on down the great divide

He put his name in my verses and his name in the hook
Before I knew what I was cooking, it was already cooked
He’s got a line in the water, he’s a fisher of men

And he put his name in my chorus like the dark before the dawn
So that in my hour of weakness, I’d remember it’s his song
He’s got a line in the water, he’s a fisher of men
