lyrics

What I fear is I could disappear
If I end up staying here, my life would pay
me a meager sum just to slip away, slip away

The houses here are empty wooden cribs
they are longing for their kids, who’s lives had left for good
slipped away through the neighborhood, left for good

But beating on the stop signs and the playground swings
is the sense that people aren’t guilty of anything
but of wanting, but of wanting, wanting

The golden coin, the chance to shine
the hero fool, the dreamer’s crime

Far from me, in a rain-soaked mountain tree
that’s where I dream you wait for me
with a book of your rhymes to lend me out some peace of mind

And there among the river rocks and streams
neither you nor I will be blamed for anything
but of wanting, but of wanting, but of wanting

The golden coin, the chance to shine
the hero fool, the dreamer’s crime

oh so far away, so far away
I’m wanting, I’m wanting, I’m wanting you
Your golden hair, your secret signs
your humble heart, oh love of mine
