lyrics

Lie leave me by the banks of clay and brine
I have seen my one true love follow behind
Lie relieve me of the need for pantomime
Lie that’s seen me through the tremblings of these times

When the vagaries of rhyme
Leave this place for yours and mine

Lover, I think about your cities in the dust
And the temple that I’ve built around my lust
You can raze it to the ground now babe if you must
Lie prepare for me a bed of cardamine
Lie believe me that this world prepares a sign

When a glimmer in the wine
Lets us know that we’ll be fine
And a curling of the vine
Leaves a trace of your design

Oh and I got my fatherly ways
Oh and I got my fatherly ways
Oh and I got my fatherly ways
Oh and you blessed the work of my hands
Oh and I scattered seeds in your sands
Oh and I couldn’t parse out my days
Oh and I got my fatherly ways

Lie that grabbed me by the scruff upon my chin
Lie that taught me what a sorry state I’m in
Must’ve been a lie that traced for me the contours of the truth
Lie that chased me through the corridors of my youth
Because lover, I still listen for you
By the water side
When a hint of morning
Blushes in the sky
Till the dreadful evening
Ro-olls in with the tide

When a clouding of the mind
Leaves a candle lit in kind
And a curse upon the vine
Makes its case for yours and mine

Oh and I got my fatherly ways
Oh and I got my fatherly ways
Oh and I got my fatherly ways
Oh and the water laps at our feet
Oh and the ways our bodies will meet
Oh and the ocean numbers our days
Oh and I got my fatherly ways

In the night, by the light of the moon
Pray on, pray on, pray on, pray on
In the night, by the light of the moon
