RICK FORD ≈ Lyrics

VOICES OF YESTERDAY
Rick Ford

I was ragged I was weary I guess Iíd been too long on the road
There was starlight in the heavens lighting me on my way home
But I was stranded on the mountain like an eagle with two broken wings
And the voices of yesterday cried out let us come in

I saw schoolboys in a circle teasing and taunting their prey
I played victim, I played joker, till they carried the carcass away
I sought blessings from my father before I could even begin
And the voices of yesterday cried out let us come in

I saw angels sneaking glances at the boys hanging out by the pool
And their laughter was infectious as they promised to break all the rules
I saw lovers lying in haystacks as spiders crawled over their skin
And the voices of yesterday cried out let us come in

Let us come in, oh let us come in
And the voices of yesterday cried out let us come in

She was dancing in the doorway all that she wore was a grin
I was spellbound as I watched her, the face of original sin
There was magic in the moment, a crazy and beautiful thing
And the voices of yesterday cried out let us come in

I saw sailboats in the harbour, Ďneath a rain flecked and wintery sky
As we looked down from the lighthouse, I swear there were tears in her eyes
And Iím haunted by the memory of the song that she chose to sing
And the voices of yesterday cried out let us come in

Let us come in, let us come in
And the voices of yesterday cried out let us come in

Walked through wild woods in the winter all deep and mysterious grave
As an owl called through the snowflakes I felt like I could be saved
And I was blinded by the beauty of all that my life could bring
And the voices of yesterday cried out let us come in

Now thereís children raising children growing up from the earth round my feet
As I daydream of tomorrow, I wonder where we might meet
And I know now Iís just drifting in a fragrant and dangerous wind
And the voices of yesterday cried out let us come in

Let us come in, let us come in
And the voices of yesterday cried out let us come in
