Did I burn each last bit of myself Did I turn my back on the kid in myself And tear the oldest root In a charlatan's pursuit And the world drifting father away On the run with nowhere to ride The black angel still clings to my side You know he's faster than Any man And the world drifting father away What I told you lover I guess that I meant By the time that you read this I will have repented I know I am a fool For trying to play it cruel And you played so much kinder than I Your memory know is the shadow to my shadow I wind it tight like a player piano Your skirt above your knees I watch you press the keys It calms the smarting flesh Of the wound we have undressed If still there's a song deep in this marrow Who lets you draw that last shivering arrow What kind of smarting loon Believes that he can shoot the moon Calm these failing nerves They ask to be preserved I was ashamed and mute Fumbling around for my parachute Then gliding through the rain Not a drop could leave its stain And the world drifting farther away
