lyrics

you never should've left my side in the late morning sun
all the words I wrote to you carry the weight of 40 tons
this new love of yours she will only break your heart
& every time she makes you laugh we're further from the start

the minister just grinned & made up another rule
she looks at us & sees just a bunch of forlorn fools
taking all our trusting with our money & our souls
leaving empty promises of stairways of gold

if your father doesn't kill you, boy, your naivety will
for every big step you take you slide further down the hill
this is the last verse I'll write for you so you better move along
when you drop the needle it never play my songs

all tied up in this little place where we never see the rain
we're gonna need it someday to level out the pain
falling over the milo all lined up in pretty rows
what the gods sent so incarnate, the thunder & the snow
