lifeblood: songs: lyrics: mariner moonlighting


mariner
moonlighting
building for keeps
the art of the theater
and joinery

something of wood
and iron
steady and strong
but the joining of hearts
is a trick far beyond him

the cupids of heaven
are painted to mock him
'cause baby won't go
(baby won't go)
go for that show

i read your name
in charcoal
from a century ago
i stood in the rafters
while the world moved below

ah for the reverie
of rigging and rope
but to untangle
the tempest of love
is another man's calling

the cupids of heaven
are painted to mock him
'cause baby won't go
(baby won't go)
go for that show

oh to be free
from the swell
of the moon
to stand in one place
while she moves to you

the cupids of heaven
are painted to mock him
'cause baby won't go
baby won't go
go for that show
