“Crippled Lion” Lyrics

Slowly I walk through the gently falling rain
I know that I will never pass this way again
Never wondering why
Teardrops chafing my eyes

Longing to be where the noted kisses fall
Lingering and still, while quietly they tell their all
Blue is the color of the sun
And nothing stops when everything is done

Now my whole world opens up in different rhymes and tunes
With highways making up the verse
And then suddenly I see the light of something called the moon
And though my path is planned, it’s not rehearsed

So I move along to the next thing on the list
Knowing full well that some of them just don’t exist
But I am finally alone
Where my foot steps down is where it’s home

[break]

Now my whole world opens up in different rhymes and tunes
With highways making up the verse
Then suddenly I see the light of something called the moon
And though my path is planned, it’s not rehearsed

So I move along to the next thing on the list
Knowing full well that some of them just don’t exist
But I am finally alone
And where my foot steps down is where it’s home
And where my foot steps down is where it’s home
