Sharon caught a fever and a patch of nasty sores
And several more conditions of yore.
But Hiram saw the heathens as wolves tapping his door.
At bay? Oh, they never saw the shore before Hiram sunk a ship
Or tore the knees of faithful horse
Their elixirs and potions would never fill his poor Sharon.

So as Hiram tended Sharon, and Sharon with her sores, I was left alone more and more.
But I was not your average overweight, young, healthy boy
See, I could see, Oh, But I could see more!
So Hiram sunk their ships and tore the knees of horses more
But it was me their elixirs and potions were for.

Could Sharon hear the footsteps on creaky floorboards?
Did she see me, pillow toting, as I crept past her door?

See, I was free of fever, but my mind was full of sores,
And several more conditions of yours.
But Hiram saw my demons as a kid just being bored.
At bay? Oh, they'd taken the shore before Hiram had drawn the shades
And locked the locks on every door.
The tears and the screaming would never reach the ears of poor Sharon.

So as Hiram tended Sharon, and Sharon with her sores, I was freeing locks on the doors.
And I was not his average underweight, young, crazy boy
See, I was free! Oh, but I could free more!
So as Hiram lay to nap, break from his kneeling over sores
I, now clenching cushion, made a lunge across the floor.

Could Sharon hear the struggle on hollow floorboards?
Did she see me, pillow toting, as I crept past her door?


I will hold it down 'til he stops breathing...


So Sharon lived to see the spring green.
A potion found to keep her sore free.
Inquired how much of Hiram I'd seen.
But I'd ask again, "Who was he?"
The heathens came by horseback and sea,
Their elixirs and potions in me.
