playFairytales

from Sessions (2003) BUY

in a town of magic thoughts  
where treasures lay in wooden boxes  
with cobblestones and candle light

waves caress the rocky coast  
and souls fly like translucent ghosts  
on their final flight

i will walk down empty streets  
my pants rolled up above bare feet  
with a suitcase filled with lyric sheets  
left undone

and the angels will all gather round  
to take me in and lay me down  
chanting welcome, welcome

chorus

and i could be gone like the wind  
it doesn't take a lot to take away the things you've got in store  
and would you cry for a friend  
who couldn't bring you fairytales anymore

the iron gates will creek in time  
with the thatched roofs and the clinging vines  
and all good things will form a line  
and pass through me

and i'll be forced to catch my breath  
and know the warmth inside my breast  
and this will surely be my test  
divinity

and soon i will forget the past  
and all the things that wouldn't last  
and all the dreams and spells i cast  
within my mind

and if you look you'll see me there  
and i'll return a humble stare  
and you will know i'll always care  
about what i left behind

chorus

and i will still be singing  
but i will change my tune  
and i'll go:

as loud as you shout you will always be sleeping  
time's slow hand will always be creeping  
around to the top and back again  
another life gone and another begins  
the weight of the world is a soft caress  
there's no such thing as a wasted breath  
and the things that you want should cover a lot  
and the things that you need you've probably got  
and as long as there's love there will always be pain  
cause we soak in the sun through the knowledge of rain  
even water coming down will wash you clean  
and the hurt will make you strong, you'll see

chorus
