She waits long days veiled in white cotton Dressed for all those faces she’s forgotten Forgotten She ain’t gonna go Met a man dressed in robes of gold satin He’s blessed her for all things that she let happen Climbing high to heaven’s gate To knock firm on the door She asks him for more borrowed time Like which he gave before Before, she ain’t gonna go Sweet babe can’t cross to the other side yet Ain’t seen nothin’ at all gonna ride on a dragon Fire under your head Before you’re finally called Tiptoe from the man in the clouds Until you finally fall

Oh it seems that you’ve been here too long You watch the sand fall down in your hourglass clock is ticking and you're running out of time the shorthand and the longhand racing by Your hourglass And the others how they point and stare Their faces pressed up cold against your hourglass But you’re tired, you’re chasing them all away You’d rather dance with the shadows of the dying day in your hourglass in your hourglass in your hourglass in your hourglass in your hourglass in your hourglass in your hourglass

Well now she lift me up She do me well Took out a wand Cast a magic spell kissed my lips she set me free Put a cold heart warm My lady majesty Oh she told jokes like these Well I ran to the master Got down on my knees I asked for her hand now Oh I beg and plead He sent me on my way With nothing but a steed He said only jesters Make jokes like these Through the winds I walked the fields of longing The half moon wanes as my riders find their way When two tall trees they got up and started walking Chased me down that windy road again Through the winds I walked fields of longing The half moon wanes as my riders find their way When two tall trees they got up and started walking Chased me down that windy road again

Across the land of whimsy A reverie has passed To the gardens where dreamers grow The love I've found at last Gripped with regret and I'm seized with a song For I gave you my heart Oh you've been away for too long Been away for too long Come forth my darlin' My sweet little bird All I wanted to give to you Was my undying word Now your story it lies unspoken It would have called for surprise But your message lives on Through the old and the wise Old and the wise Seasons are changing Green grasses grow And colors of red and gold Stream down paths I've known And with each travelled road Is a tired, latent sun And the skies fill with sadness For the heart I never won

hunger, it’s a creepin' ghost And a stealthy hand, it will rarely boast I’ve been away but I've come back to see The haloes of holy little thieves been there too long got to get movin' along to the places that'll do me no wrong watch the children break others' bread rags to riches are a favored friend I’ve been away but I've come back to see The haloes of holy little thieves same today as is tomorrow for those that beg, steal, loot & borrow I been away But I've come back to see The haloes of holy little thieves Been there too long Got to get movin’ on To places that'll do me no wrong Thievin' men, travel coast to coast they are the vagabonds ain't got nowhere to go I been away but I've come back to see the haloes of holy little thieves been there too long got to get movin' on to the places that'll do me no wrong Watch the children break Others' bread Rags to riches are A favored friend for Holy little thieves Holy little thieves Holy little thieves I am A holy little thief Oh holy little thieves

I gave my love out like a lonely child to far out reaches of the land I watched the devil cradle sunshine fanned its flames beneath my hand no rest for those in the wintertime they're burnin' oil till the morn’ tellin’ tales of glory only to be reborn to be reborn the moon it comes out a shinin’ to tell its brother to obey but the sun keeps howlin’ more to make a workin’ man pay they build up strawmen in the daytime then light a match beneath the hay from dusk to dawn oh it keeps on burnin’ now burnin’ away oh burnin’ away in a dimly lit castle hallways made up of stone they'll send statues out to get you cast you out of your home be careful with every goblet vials laced with cyanide for vengeance is a virtue that a hurtin’ man he will justify
