Elegy Lyrics

Leif Vollebekk – Elegy Lyrics

Minor chords and major arcana
Little leather jacket and a black bandana
Kicking over trashcans and telling jokes in Atlanta
When I got the fever, it hit me like a fan
On the back of my hand I don't know who I am
But I'm free for nothing good for nothing too
Crazy to dream and still crazy about you
Won't you let me in one more time, babe I want to feel it too
Well nothing is a lie, babe if you know it ain't true

Take a look at me now
Take a look at me now

Reparations now coming my way
Dues that I've recollected that I never paid
In the stained glass windows babe I feel the presence, oh yeah
But that don't mean I'm done with repentance so oh no
Gonna find another way to climb out of this basement
Gonna find out what that smile on your face meant
Like a thief that you borrow baby take a hold of me, take flight
And I want to do your bidding babe I want to steal away in the night

Take a look at me now
Take a look at me now

Heart's on fire; so is the page
Everybody round here is telling me to act my age, I'm tryin'
Things are only revealed in the light that is given
Oh to be freed from the pardon when all else is forgiven
Rain outside is blowing in the curtains
Nothing is revealed but nothing is for certain
As I recall you was drinking from the sanctuary wine
Well don't worry baby we'll find all of our lost time

Take a look at me now
Take a look at me now

As I recall you were standing there, you was holding your rosary beads
Everyone around here seems to think he knows what he needs
Seven ugly reasons kept me away from you then
Nothing is much weaker than the resolve of most men
I remember when we was alone in your room
Staring out your window we knew you'd be going soon
And I was so young babe I hope that you knew that I meant well
And when I looked in your eyes I thought I knew you could tell
Now I'm blown back from the cemetery gates
You whom I loved dearly now I must wait
To be reunited in the sky when it opens
Well my feet are so tired baby but my spirit ain't broken

Take a look at me now
Take a look at me now
