There's a lady at the train station The railroad goes skyward on platform one Wearing a pencil skirt and a peacoat The ones received, cloaked in skins far from their own In the Claddagh Palace as children The screen before us apparitions to heathens Before Beauty and the Beast, I loved you so There's innocence but we can't dig up that gold At witching hour the firmament fell on our lawn All the angels in the snow are long gone Your mam put 50p in the collection For Joseph's forgiveness, Mary's protection Skate out Galway Bay, the horizon, The village of LA burning in the sun At witching hour the firmament fell on our lawn But all the angels in the snow are long gone A most savage crime when the grown-ups forged our Valentine's I was a long, long way out of earshot by teatime There's a lady at the train station Her suitcase a device of transfiguration
