Tower of Song


Well my friends are gone and my hair is grey
I ache in the places where I used to play
And I´m crazy for love but I´m not coming on
I´m just paying my rent every day
Oh in the Tower of Song
I said to Hank Williams: how lonely does it get?
Hank Williams hasn´t answered yet
But I hear him coughing all night long
A hundred floors above me
In the Tower of Song

I was born like this, I had no choice
I was born with the gift of a golden voice
And twenty-seven angels from the Great Beyond
They tied me to this table right here
In the Tower of Song

So you can stick your little pins in that voodoo doll
I´m very sorry, baby, doesn´t look like me at all
I´m standing by the window where the light is strong
Ah they don´t let a woman kill you
Not in the Tower of Song

Now you can say that I´ve grown bitter but of this you may be sure
The rich have got their channels in the bedrooms of the poor
And there´s a mighty judgement coming, but I may be wrong
You see, you hear these funny voices
In the Tower of Song

I see you standing on the other side
I don´t know how the river got so wide
I loved you baby, way back when
And all the bridges are burning that we might have crossed
But I feel so close to everything that we lost
We´ll never have to lose it again

Now I bid you farewell, I don´t know when I´ll be back
There moving us tomorrow to that tower down the track
But you´ll be hearing from me baby, long after I´m gone
I´ll be speaking to you sweetly
From a window in the Tower of Song

Yeah my friends are gone and my hair is grey
I ache in the places where I used to play
And I´m crazy for love but I´m not coming on
I´m just paying my rent every day
Oh in the Tower of Song
