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 its 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
Listening to their hearts and the changing of their breath
Listening to their hearts and the changing of their breath
