lyrics

i know death like I know my own face
with material aid standing in my way
I know health like I know my own step
the only price you pay is that of itself
I know love like I know my own tongue
sooner or later they both leak blood
I know myself like I know the rain
sometimes it pours but in the end it fades away

I saw heaven and it was not a place
it was the light on my lover’s face
I saw the devil in the back of the room
whiskey in his grin he will come when I refuse
I saw gabriel playing his horn
when he finished he motioned to the door
I saw God her eyes were deep and cool
when she spoke she shed a single tear whispering “fool”

I’ve heard music coming from the moon
but she always quits playing if you don’t know the tune
I’ve heard the wind howling to me too
he forgot the words to the second verse for the moon
I’ve heard the woods as they madly play their flute
waiting for the day that I will return to you
and yes I’ve heard the ocean croon
it’s true what they say, she invented the blues
