At long weary last this game is over
The sins of the past have fled from my shoulder
The sleep that I need is all I ask
In thought and in deed I have burned the mask
Here I am...
Here I am...

Enchantment is broken
I merge with the crowd
Oaths have been spoken inside and out loud
Emerging from under notions of god
In tears and in wonder I venture 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 loathly 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
For 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
