Taking trust, returning pain
Not just one time
Not just two times
I mean time and time again 

Gee, my pockets mighty quiet
They don't jingle like they should
O well you may not believe me
But that emptiness feels good
I am the lily in the valley
Never toil and never spin
I can live on rain and sunshine
With my only friend the wind
