Where have you been my long lost friend?
What did you search for and how did it end?
Come sit with me with your crooked smile
We shall drink tea and talk for awhile
I searched for a woman with love in her eyes
I searched for a mountain no man has climbed
I searched for a widow holding a rose
I searched for knowledge that nobody knows
Tell me my friend what did you find?
Answers to questions? Perhaps peace of mind?
Give me a clue what mysteries where held?
Did you find riches or something to sell?
I found a woman with scorn in her eyes
I found a mountain gutted by mines
I found a widow with blood on her hands
I found war in the holy lands
So I cried and I cried, yes I cried and I cried
I wanted to lie down and die
Yes I wanted to lie down and die
Your journey has ended your safe here with me
I'll give you comfort allow you to see
I'll stop your bleeding, wipe sweat from your face
I'll build a home and give you a place
But I have no answers, I'm not without sin
I started a journey now its journeys end
Why would you take me when it appears I have failed?
Why give me shelter when I ought to be jailed?
Because you cried and you cried,
yes you cried and you cried
Then you wanted to lie down and die
Yes you wanted to lie down and die.
