lyrics

I keep a little part of you with me
Like dirt deposited on the side of a stream
Like broken down cars on a dark highway
My flightless dove, you are here to stay

We're bound together I do believe
This station does not fit comfortably
No use flying on a restless wing
My flightless, you're the beginning

I used to be a good old fashioned sailor
I lived for nothing else than to keep my life in danger
Drunk and innocent at sea
My flightless dove, you're calling me


In this frozen town there is no food to eat
Winter comes and sends me a shiver that could break my knees
Each to their own, no use crying
She came from the rocks with all the shadows, hiding
The heart of a woman is the same of a man
But all this blame comes down like rain
There is no safety in the shade
This is the imitation of love, my friend
"My friend," she said, "I cannot love you again
Not for all the money in the world"
The heart of a boy is the same as the heart of a girl


The clouds are comin'
The clouds are comin'
The clouds are comin' in
The clouds are rollin'
The clouds are upon us
In the shape of a dove and an ox
