Hey William Mathew Prior guess what? I’m a painter for hire too it’s ok there’s worse things you could be take it from me I’ve tried everything It ain’t what you do It’s who you do it for That’s what you are It ain’t the easiest thing in the world To paint two eyes and a mouth hole Lost upon a common face It’s ok We won’t look away chorus we won’t look away we won’t look away till you know our faces Till you can paint every one From memory It’s ok Don’t look away… chorus don’t look away don’t look away can you see our ghosts? would you paint our ghosts? and William, when you’re a ghost yeah, William, when you’re a ghost you’ll be something to see
I am master of the sun I am maker of the rain but everywhere you go There’s nothing but snow There’s nothing to hold Cuz everything is frozen I am mountain side I climb, I cannot help it The higher you go There’s nothing but snow… There’s nothing to hold Swami says / you gotta get / out of it / when you can hiding hiding hiding hiding hiding hiding hiding
Caught off guard for a moment, for a moment, for a day Or turn your head just for a moment, just for a moment, and it’s already too late I bend down just to see how everyone’s getting on—man, everyone’s growin old Turn into just for a moment, is that what you asked for? Is this what it takes? Some hearts are brave and unhappy, but not quite brave enough to be great I’m afraid of a normal life; that’s the fate of a normal life there's no such thing as a normal life I bend down just to see how everyone’s getting on—ooooooh - everyone
Come on you saint, your faithful farness calls to you Too few the years that take their toll in silver, not tears Honey, I could let you in I could be your truest friend, that’s ok... I know the feeling Honey, you can let yourself go you can lay down in the snow that’s ok, well, I know the feeling. when you just gotta go home
