She tied a rope around your neck
And led you through the town
With love that’s like the gallows
Strung but she’ll never cut you down
When you left the sun went out
Walk in fields of grey
And I will wear my feather crown
Turn the night to day

You said my name but the devil came
With her black eyes and paper cut smile
You said my love has it been so long
Won’t you stay a little while
I said, no chance, the devil won’t dance
Or run with the wolves in the wild
I’ve had my fill, my way with your will
Leave me here, leave me here

To sleep like a child
To sleep like a child
To sleep like a child
To sleep like a child
To sleep like a child

You asked me silently, to keep your secrets close to me
You asked me silently, to keep your secrets close to me

To sleep like a child
To sleep like a child
