And the winter was cold
When I caught her saving race
With the truth that you sold
A mast of a man
Making casts of his puppets

And you made her the queen
But a slave to the silence of lost chivalry
You were the match that he struck
With no flame there to turn to

And it's great the way the town shakes when they confess

There's a messenger on the lawn
Delivering a broken letter
Saving all his words 'til dawn
And the reason why he left her
Jack, give yourself some room to grow
Call your daughter and let her know
Your ruby shoes will bring you home

Composed of all fear and chilled to the bone
From the worlds that you hear when the priest fought
To bless all the press you have gotten

And the pictures will fall, suspended like spirits
From nails on the wall, and sweep up the mess
With the best of intentions

And it's great the way the town shakes when they confess

There's a messenger on the lawn
Delivering a broken letter
Saving all his words 'til dawn
And the reason why he left her
Jack, give yourself some room to grow
Call your daughter and let her know
Your ruby shoes will bring you home

Isn't it wonderful how they lost their innocence?
And it's great the way the town shakes when they confess

There's a messenger on the lawn
Delivering a broken letter
Saving all his words 'til dawn
And the reason why he left her
Jack, give yourself some room to grow
As static leaves your radio
Your ruby shoes will bring you home
