The Storyman



I lived my life in the words of a Storyman
Watched my dreams from the years gone by
Heard my voice in the songs of a Storyman
Always by my side, always by my side;

I saw him first in a castle by candlelight
Turning round with a golden key
I heard a train far away, and a whistle blow
Like a baby's cry, 'twas like a baby's cry;

Ravens stood on the walls of Jerusalem
Sailors danced at the borderline
Light a fire on the road to the ferryman
Emotions running high, in the summertime;

Take me back to the places I've never been
Take me back to another time
Take me back to a world I have never seen
Only in my mind, only in my mind;

Late last night I met up with a lady-love
Dressed in red, didn't say goodbye
Carry me to the last time I showed her what
Tender hands can do, and I'll be missing you;

Take me back to the places I've never been
Take me back to another time
Take me back to a world I have never seen
Only in my mind, only in my mind;
The Storyman
