Tell Me What You've Seen

lyrics

I remember when the lights were long
In the house upon the hill
Don’t cry no more my red eyed sun
Lay down and be still
Your horse’s eyes are black as night
Come tell me what’s his name?
His eyes are black but his coat is white
He’s got cinders in his mane

I’ve seen nights that would open up
And take me deep inside
I’ve seen days full of haze
Full of ribbons in the sky

Well, everybody’s got the right to
Throw their visions in the sun
Turn their words to ridicule
And poison on the tongue
But if you were me and I was you
I’d lay down at your door
Wet my lips in the morning blue
And I’d show you what it’s for

You’ve got eyes of the kind
That make me wanna die
Feel so close, so alone
Honey, I feel so alive

Curl your lips and kiss my mouth
And don’t you say a word
We’ve talked enough to wear me out
Just standin’ on the curb
Windy roads and the shady pines
Forever, be your name
Laws fall down at the hands of time
It’s a wonder that we stay

Telling lies, telling truth
Telling something in between
Wipe the tears from your eyes
Honey, tell me what you’ve seen

Come on take a little walk with me
It doesn’t matter where we go
I just wanna lay down by your side
With the lamplight burning low
I wish to my God, I never been born
I’d never know your name
Nor kissed your lips, nor kept you warm
On a cold November’s day

It’s alright if you lied
I knew it wasn’t true
Young awhile you are mine
It don’t matter what you do
