Please can you give me the thing I need most?
Please could you tell me how to heal these scars?
Can it be found in the caves of the dark?
Can it be found written up in the stars?

Please could you give me the drink that heals all?
For there are wounds that must heal in my mind
Could I be treated to the springs that heal?
Could you please show me the things I can’t find?

There on the shelf are the things that you seek
All of them labeled and sorted for you
Many of them are your old favorite things
Some I just got and you’ll find they’re so new

Dandelion, chamomile, tansy, pennyroyal
Savory, cilantro, thyme, feverfew
Bay, parsley, fennel, tarragon, anemone
Foxglove, hydrangea, vervain and rue

New is the sage that I string from the roof
Images, shadows all dance ‘round the hall
This you may like though you pay much for it
Do not mind visions of holes in the wall

Give me a cure for I think I’ve gone mad
I cannot see your face at all
Just a quick herbal fix will do
All I can see is the hole in the wall

Placed by magic never to go
Now you know where thoughts go when they die
Sing a song that won’t fade if you can
Now you’ve seen my oft-believed lie

Now you have seen my oft believed lie
