The Charlatans Lament Lyrics

At long weary last
This game is over
The sins of our past
Fled from my shoulder

The sleep that I need
Is all I ask
In thought and in deed
I have burnt the mask

Here I am
Here I am

Enchantment is broken
I merged with the crowd
Oaths have been spoken
Inside and out loud

Emerging from under
Motions of God
In tears and in wonder
I ventured abroad

Here I am
Here I am

Can you walk a smithereen
Can you walk a smithereen
Closer to me

Could you love a thimbleful
Could you love a thimbleful
Harder for me

Encountered a [Incomprehensible] hag
Blood on the snow
She said, "I've a burden to drag
And leagues to go"

I left her down by the seaside
In someone's hall
By dawn's empty light I cried
To no one at all

Here I am
Here I am

Can you walk a smithereen
Can you walk a smithereen
Closer to me

Could you love a thimbleful
Could you love a thimbleful
Harder for me

I swing between
Tears and wonder
I swing between
Tears and wonder

I swing between
Tears and wonder
I swing between
Tears and wonder
Tears and wonder

Can you walk a smithereen
Can you walk a smithereen
Closer to me

Could you love a thimbleful
Could you love a thimbleful
Harder for me
Harder for me
