lyrics

She wakes at dawn and slips out of bed
She twist her knotted hair, flames of red
Her naked toes kiss the marble floor
And as she tip toes towards the double doors

She’s creeping past scores of rooms
Filled with antiques and heirlooms
Whistling the same old tune of
Poisoned hearts and dusty tombs

Silently she opens the double doors
The morning air is wet and engulfs her
Her satin gown slips off her pale hips
And as she sighs she drifts down to river Styx

And while she passes picked fences
White roses, bad intentions
Whistling the same old tune of
Ships and sails and silver moons

Two coins for The Ferryman stolen from her next of kin
Steal her away from home and take her
To her lovers bones

She hands the coins over to The Ferryman
She says “ My child, you must be mistaken
I can tell these coins don’t belong to you
You stole them from the man you wed
The man you slew”
“you may never cross my river
You’re doomed to haunt forever
You lovers bones are not with me
You died that day yet
He still breathes”

Two coins for The Ferryman stolen from her next of kin
Steal her away from home and take her
To her lovers bones

It spoke of the earthquakes I left behind and the sung of the woman I was yet to come. ... more
