Roll Your Stone

from by Birds of Bellwoods

lyrics

(Now) I am cheap and you are sold,

And I am sick and you are old;

I play the fool, drown in gold,

Time is money, so I’m told.

Look, I’ve come undone again,

Darling I can’t be your friend,

If you are lost I’ll win it on my own.


Oh roll your stone.

Deep into the night;

Your stone,

Blocking out the light;

Your stone,

But can you sleep alone,

And are you holding on, or are you just not letting go?

Your stone.

(Well) Dawn is merry, full of grace,

But there’s a bitter aftertaste;

My heart is yours to waste,

Waiting for one cold embrace.

Why can’t I sleep in this bed that we’ve made,

Love and you leave at the end of the day,

And I am left awake and all alone.


Oh roll your stone.

Deep into the night,

Your stone,
Blocking out the light;

Your stone,

But can you sleep alone,

And are you holding on or are you just not letting go?

Your stone.

I keep this light on for you,

And that will never change.

Lord rest this broken body,

I’ll never feel the same.

And if you see me coming,

I’ll never look away.

Know these are graves you walk in,

But I’ve seen brighter days.


Oh roll your stone.

Deep into the night,

Your stone,
Blocking out the light;

Your stone,

But can you sleep alone,
And are you holding on or are you just not letting go?
Your stone.

(So) Even though my hands may shake

I know the myth is mine to make
‘Cause darling you just take and take

And bend my back until you break my bones.


Oh roll your stone.
