Two Coins.

I am still terribly obsessed with this song. So much love for the lyrics, & the melody.

It’s always the simple ones, eh:

North west is where I’m heading
Underneath the golden sky
I’m searching for wisdom
That every man seeks to find

I’ve got wicked thoughts brewing
Many evil deeds I’ve done
I’m looking for a reason
For a reason not to run

Cuz I’ve always been dark
With light somewhere in the distance
I’ve always been dark
With light somewhere in the distance

I’ve got no destination
No place to call my own
I’ll explore the constellations
Til I find the cause I’m mean to hold

But come fever or come famine
Come the biting winter cold
Just put two coins upon my eyelids
So I can pay the boatman’s toll

Cuz I’ve always been dark
With light somewhere in the distance
I’ve always been dark
With light somewhere in the distance

I’ve been so unforgiving
Stranded in old traditions

Cuz I’ve always been dark
With light somewhere in the distance
I’ve always been dark
With light somewhere in the distance

I’ve always been dark
With light somewhere in the distance
I’ve always been dark
With light somewhere in the distance

(dedicated to my fellow screw-ups oxo)
