From the recording Whistle Past The Grave

Lyrics

DON’T TAKE IT FROM ME

Don’t take it from me
I’m not as I seem
Those stories I tell
They’re drawn from the well

Don’t take it from me
Light’s meant to be seen
But here in the dark
Where I make my mark

Nothing seems as beautiful
As when it first arrives
Sit with it a little while
It’ll lose its shine

I don’t mean to be a downer
But it seems to me
We need some truth

Don’t take it from me
It’s lost all its sheen
But in the right hands
Its beauty set free
Its beauty set free
Don’t take it from me
Don’t take it from me
