Living on a caravan of misfits
But we’re not going anywhere
The church bells rang on Sunday morning
And the grass was we beneath your hair

Maybe I’m in need of something stronger
To get me through the darkness I’ve been in
‘cause I hear a distant drum
And the sound of voices singing
But my back is tired and my eyes are growing dim

I have been so careful in the sun
That I never found the way to go
But you made me feel like I was part of everything
And you made it easier to know

That the past still walks beside me
It’s the flesh of my desire
It’s the secrets in my heart that never show
And I skip a die beside you
And it told me that you’re lucky
Do you have the eyes that you would know?

Repeat chorus

And the dream that you have dreamed
That I had dreamed before
Did it find you with your ear against the wall
And in time, they say, we’ll understand
But many have been wrong
Look at all the ones that had to fall

Repeat chorus

I remember standin’ in the station
Chasing cold and burning like the rest
And you took me by the hand
Through the streets that we were leaving
Singing, hey there don’t you know
That you are blessed?
