This is where it started
The trucks, the trees and her six bells
Now baby's going to look back home
I'm wearing my clean clothes
Yeah, I still got the ones you gave me
You've been treading some unsafe ground
And baby looks tired tonight
Out amongst the pikes and narrow streets
You go around
I hear the six bells, they're ringing
Yeah, the six bells they chime

Lay down your head now
You will sleep sound
I'll hold onto you
Through life's time
You're seventeen
You're seventeen at this time

I wear your silver ring
With your hand on my heart
Left you there with your gray eyes
Pack up their suitcase and leave
Raise my hand up to the sky
Now, don't you touch me
Don't you try
An age ago you wouldn't touch me
On the last day
We will always be fighting
A promise
A year of luxury
Perfect
Perfect kiss
How long, my long lost,
Will the last day be
I'm innocent of you there
And you of me

And you will sleep sound
I'll hold onto you
In life’s time
You're seventeen
You're seventeen at this time

I met you when you were a young girl
Years and years six bells back
Six bells passed above the two
On a pier in another time
When I drew your body close to mine
You held your head up high then
You reached inside then
I'd give you everything
At this time
My pretty one
My fearless one
You held your head up high then
My fearless one
From this time
My fearless one
My young pretty one
The six bells - I made them ring

Lay down your head now
You will sleep sound
I will hold onto you
Until death's time
You're seventeen at this time
You're seventeen at this time
