If you want to leave, ‘ain’t no way I’m ever ‘gonna stop you now
tears don’t come cheap, and there’s not a single dry eye in the house
sister please

you were by my side all through the cold winds' blow
now I bring you wild flowers, you only stand and scream for me to go
sister please

there’s a slow steady rain coming down
tugging like your monkey on my sleeve

you draw your shades to keep the light from reaching through
if your life-line breaks, you will drown so many more than you
it’s true, sister please

now there’s a slow steady pain in my heart
tugging like your monkey on my sleeve
trying to love a junkie is such a lonely place to be

sister, I have lied for you
like I have lied for the truth
sister

it’s all in the way you move, not the words you say
like a permanent mark you can’t wash away
it’s all in the whispered words ringing in my ears
like bread crumbs and petty theft on the trail of tears
it’s all up to you now
and there’s a slow steady rain coming down
tugging like your monkey on my sleeve
