Faubush Hill

Faubush Hill - Red Mandolin

rate me

She held a red mandolin, played it like a sin

In a smoky village room where the kisses taste like gin

And stick like fresh marmalade, to the sugar sweet charade

Far beneath a jealous moon she sings her serenade

I would lay, I would lay, I would lay, I would lay my life down for you dear

Shelter all your innocence, swallow all your tears

I would lay, I would lay, I would lay, I would lay my life down for you love

Because tonight, you're the only dream I'm dreaming of

Her melody so serene, Picasso painted her in greens

With envy of the passion that she kissed on every string

And every note tied the tune, to the rainy afternoons

Her daydreams, songs and poetry all washed away too soon

I would lay, I would lay, I would lay, I would lay my life down for you dear

Shelter all your innocence, swallow all your tears

I would lay, I would lay, I would lay, I would lay my life down for you love

Because tonight, you're the only dream I'm dreaming of

It seems all of her fantasies were tied by insecurities

And hung beneath a willow tree, she swore she'd never tell

Her tears filled up a wishing well with tips from passing fare-the-wells

She played as though her tune would cast a spell

But she never fell

She held a red mandolin, played it like a sin

In a smoky village room where the kisses taste like gin

And stick like fresh marmalade, to the sugar sweet charade

Far beneath a jealous moon she sings her serenade

I would lay, I would lay, I would lay, I would lay my life down for you dear

Shelter all your innocence, swallow all your tears

I would lay, I would lay, I would lay, I would lay my life down for you love

Because tonight, you're the only dream I'm dreaming of
