lyrics

Can you take me there ‘cause I don’t want to know a thing
Only want to glide above it all and listen to you sing
So paint for me a picture of a misty wooded land
Set me on a grey paint mare with the reins in my hands

And pour for me from a still through a winding copper line
The voice of some old ghost who’s traveling through time
Like a blood moon harvest of an angel’s wings
Or a heartbeat promise of a midnight dream
Oh can you take me there

Walk me to the water, weightless on these bones
Dare to take me farther, farther than I’ve ever gone
Cut me right down to the quick until I recoil in bitter pain
Spill me out in crimson red and do it all again

Just wake me from this drunken slumber, sound and dull and deep
Fill me up with wild-eyed wonder and never let me sleep
‘Cause it’s a mindless, timeless, tragic waste
This wicked twisted game we play
Oh can you take me there

‘Cause I don’t want to rattle from the wind and the rain
But the hinges are broken and I’m feeling the pain
Wrap me up in flannel and pull me to the fire
When the flames die down the shadows grow higher
Katy-lock the door and seal it up tight
Put your arms around me and hold me through the night
Wake up at dawn to see the break of day
When the demons are gone there ain’t much to say

Pull from me all the tears I didn’t know I had
Like a tarnished antique mirror that’s cloudy, grey, and cracked
Speak to me a vivid truth of all I hope to know
Soothe these scars and petty wounds but heal my broken soul

Bring back to me the years I spent fighting the ways of man
Set me free on a winter’s day with my life back in my hands
Just dance me around the joyful sound of that choir singing loud
And lay me down in the hallow ground when my time runs out

Can you take me there ‘cause I don’t want to know a thing
Only want to glide above it all and listen to you sing
