Scott Walker

Scott Walker (born Noel Scott Engel on January 9, 1943) is an American-British singer-songwriter, composer and record producer. He is noted for his distinctive baritone voice (once described as "one of the finest voices to ever sing of emotional hurt and the great unknowns") and for the unorthodox career path which has taken him from 1960s pop icon to 21st century experimental musician. more »

You'll lose your way
A boy child rides upon your back
Take him away
Through mirrors dark and blessed with cracks
Through forgotten courtyards
Where you used to search for youth
Old gets a new life
Reach out you can touch it's true
He's not a shadow of shadows
Like you, you see
Hearts hold on holding
If you stay one, you'll stay free
Go seek the lady
Who will give, not take away
Naked with stillness
On the edge of dawn she stays
Night starts to empty
That's when her song begins
She'll make you happy
She'll take you deep within her
Window lights for wanderers
Hide hard in your swollen eyes
Echoes of laughter
Hide in the cities thighs
Love catch these fragments
Swirling through the winds of night
What can it cost
To give a boy child back his sight
Extensions through dimensions
Leave you feeling cold and lame
Boy child mustn't tremble
Cause he came without a name
