lyrics

I am just a young girl with hazel eyes and brown curls, and you are just a poor man’s son. We spend our waking hours making love under the covers, refusing to wait for anyone. Goodbye to my hometown I’m on a northwest bound, this is my farewell to arms. I left you unknowing, but now I am heading back, darling don’t act so alarmed.

And the cold leaves me battered as I walk down these city streets unfamiliarly and the angels all gather and sing as they walk with me, suddenly, there’s a peace and you’ll feel it too.

Like Moses down the river, I wanted nothing other than to be found by the king, but you with your antics, string theory and romantics, have other philosophies. He said, “It’s Him or me and me not Him. Don’t you see it’s all pretend? It’s time that you lay down your arms!” But I refuse to give in. “Forgive me, Father, for these sins." Darling, don’t act so alarmed.

And I’m broken and tattered as I walk down these city streets unfamiliarly and the angels all gather and sing as they walk with me, suddenly, there’s a peace and you’ll feel it too.

And the cold leaves me battered as I walk down these city streets unfamiliarly and the angels all gather and sing as they walk with me, suddenly, there’s a peace and you’ll feel it too.

Cause I am just a young girl with hope that there’s a new world waiting for a poor man’s son. He cannot convince me nor I him so we agree to lay down in each other’s arms.
