In an old house
In so many of my dreams--
A white whale
For which my ships are in
Full sail.

I harpoon
In each room;
Old loves
Lie there
Writhing.

Writhing.

It will not go away;
I can't go out and stay.
It will not go away, and
I can't go out and stay.

In an old house
There's a painting of
The sea,
And a cross upon a rock
And wild waves toss.

Steadfast girl
From the swirl
Holds on
For dear life.

Oh, dear life.

And it will not go away;
And I can't go out and stay.
No, it will not go away, and
And I can't go out and stay.
