I marvel at days that go
Tales of a grass widow
When I was young I thought I'd be
More than just a fantasy
I wanna be this, I wanna be that
A big black dog with the soul of a cat
The blue-eyed devil inside of me
He won't leave, he's buried deep

I used to have eyes the color of sky
Now I can see in the middle of the night
I used to have eyes the color of sky
Now I can see in the middle of the night

If I told you would you believe
My soul is wicked, I'm a thief
They'd have burned me 1690
'Twas a deadly nightshade which finished me
Now I'm haunting and I'm loomin' 'round
The old church yard and the damn dog pound
I'm giving some hell and I'm feeling free
Never was more than a fantasy
But I fly at night and by your candlelight
My shadow pass your window

    General Commentisn't it "I marvel at, days that go" instead of "A marvel light, a daze of gold" and "The blue eyed Devil" instead of "The blue eyed doe" and "My shadow passed your window" instead of "My shadow has your window"?
