Lyrics:

The man who owned the heartache that lived on the stairs
Passed me in the night whistling 'Memories Of You'...
I stared, too frightened to move
For fear my eyes shone a light
On the darkness he drew like a cloak
All around his shoulders...

And the church on the corner
Marked the time for the mother
Who was giving birth to a child across the hall...
And I waited, half in anger
Half in sadness for an answer
To the call for help I had written on the wall.

And the rain fell like jewels
On the heads of all the fools
Who wandered crazed with their souls ablaze for me
And the blessing of the hour
Was the twilight and the tower
With it's golden bell from the bottom of the sea...

And the moon through the window
Of the bedroom where lovers slumbered
Made a silver dance of such dust beneath the bed...
And I waited for a moment in the lamplight,
Crystal gazing...
Listening to their hearts
And the changing of their breath.
