THE WOODEN SKY THE WOODEN SKY LYRICS

well i dreamt last night
you were making love
to a bird you swore you'd given up
oh i woke up shaking
and the wolves kept watch
on the wind outside
i kept my eyes towards
the wooden sky
be no escaping
oh
be no escaping

and the rent we'd swore
to be enough
to bind a love that'd
somehow fallen short
oh
it was overdue
so i held your breath
trying to get you high
heard your lover's song
as it filled the night
and fired two shots into the sky
and kept one for you
oh
i kept one for you

i know
oh
i kept one for you
i know
oh
i kept one for you

well a fire burned bright
right above our beds
it kept us up all night
trying to make amends
oh child
your call's in vain
and i'm onto you
and i woke to find that
the time had come
to leave behind this mess
that we once called home
well tonight this child of god
will be forced to choose
oh
be forced to choose

i know
oh
be forced to choose
i know
oh
be forced to choose

at the sight of the hands
of the working men
outside my window
and a voice in my head spoke
making plans
so clear and simple

oh
kept one for you
