A foghorn blows And the kitchen light flickers It’s like a disease We pray on our knees The silver coins Are ringing in her pockets When I found you They were all around you The river’s dark There’s a castle at the bottom The boat is sinking And I’ve been thinking That she’s the one That keeps us in the shadows Under the gallows In the shadows
2.
At the window Where the weeds grow One more word for you to hear Our father’s strip mall Our mother’s bird call One more carnival this year By the river An Indian giver One more day and no more fear Another midnight Fluorescent midnight One more day and we’ll be free One more elephant to see One more day and we’ll be free Another feeling Cathedral ceiling One more miracle today With our handcuffs And with our true loves One more soul to give away Another midnight Fluorescent midnight One more day and we’ll be free One more elephant to see One more day and we’ll be free

The solar wind falls And the night turns cherry red And off the brick wall Reflecting all the things we said The silver spaceships They hold your head in the cradle dawn The silver rake slips On the rocks in a desert song And with the boat man And in the road when the rain comes down And where the bride stands Another ghost in an abandoned town And with the power lines And with the dust and the evening sky And with the mountain lion It’s in the desert where the seagulls fly And on the front line There’s a woman and a child And for the first time They light a fire and they’re running wild And when the dog runs And when the oceans all turn black And with the red sun And we won’t find our way back We won’t go back The sky’s a blindfold The child sleeps, I can hear the sound And when the earth’s cold And I’m the last one on the ground I’ll find god

The walls of this hotel are paper-thin Last night I heard you making love to him The struggle mouth to mouth and limb to limb The grunt of unity when he came in I stood there with my ear against the wall I was not seized by jealousy at all In fact a burden lifted from my soul I heard that love was out of my control A heavy burden lifted from my soul I learned that love was out of my control I listened to your kisses at the door I never heard the world so clear before You ran your bath and you began to sing I felt so good I couldn't feel a thing I stood there with my ear against the wall I was not seized by jealousy at all In fact a burden lifted from my soul I heard that love was out of my control A heavy burden lifted from my soul I learned that love was out of my control And I can't wait to tell you to your face And I can't wait for you to take my place You are the naked angel in my heart You are the woman with her legs apart It's written on the walls of this hotel You go to heaven once you've been to hell A heavy burden lifted from my soul I heard that love was out of my control
