Ring - A - Rosey

Like an angel crying mercy to a storm
You call from shadows where you don't belong
And the candle that I carry in my dark
Was once a torch to the love which I held back.
This much I can promise you
We never truly know
where we may be coming from
Or where we're bound to go


When I tried to comfort you I lied.
Now I speak with effort my tongue forever tied.
And you walked across the meadows towards the moon
Made the midnight stranger welcome much too soon.

This much I can promise you
We never truly know
Where it is we're coming from
Or where we're bound to go.


Death is ring-a-ring-a-rosey
You never reach the end
Ring-a-ring-a-rosaree
I'll pray for you.
Death is ring-a-ring-a-rosey
You never reach the end
Ring-a-ring-a-rosaree
I'll pray for you my friend.

In my sleep I see a carnival of ice.
You're wearing white and pirouette so nice.
When I stop to ask the nature of surprise
A veil of contradiction is slipped before my eyes.
This much I can promise you
We never truly know
Where it is we're coming from
Or where we're bound to go.
