Lady Midnight (vom Album: Songs From A Room)

I came by myself to a very crowded place;

I was looking for someone

who had lines in her face.

I found her there

but she was past all concern;

I asked her to hold me,

I said, "Lady, unfold me,"

but she scorned me and she told me

I was dead and I could never return.

Well, I argued all night

like so many have before,

saying, "Whatever you give me,

I seem to need so much more."

Then she pointed at me

where I kneeled on her floor,

she said, "Don't try to use me

or slyly refuse me,

just win me or lose me,

it is this that the darkness is for."

I cried, "Oh, Lady Midnight,

I fear that you grow old,

the stars eat your body

and the wind makes you cold."

"If we cry now," she said,

"it will just be ignored."

So I walked through the morning,

sweet early morning,

I could hear my lady calling,

"You've won me, you've won me, my lord ... "
