Storybook fable is ending As ten angels are descending I forget that you Are my only friend Love is my only devotion Ten little steps to the ocean Ten nights to decide Whether I can live alone Ten nights all alone Praying you haven’t gone I can’t stop love I can’t erase What’s been written down Storybook fable is ending As ten angels are descending I forget that you Are my only friend

The Depression It ruined us It ruined us It ruined us The Depression It ruined us It ruined us It ruined us Oh Marilyn Everything When the market crashed Our hopes were dashed We lost everything Everything When the winter came We lost everything Couldn't afford to stay Oh Marilyn We’d really like to keep you in Oh Marilyn We’d really like to keep you in Memories Disparate memories Of New York In the 1930s Memories Of the frozen lake And the way we tried To keep her safe Oh Marilyn There was no one left at home to let you in Oh Marilyn There was no one left at home to let you in

Take me to the red line Take me to the red line Take me to the red line Take me to the red line He was born In a cardboard shack Three Wise Men Said he's coming back Take me to the red line Take me to the red line Take me to the red line Take me to the red line Different colors Form a golden stack You can't avoid The proletariat Take me to the red line Take me to the red line Take me to the red line Take me to the red line

I want to hold you But every time I try Something keeps you Out of reach I want to love you But every time I try Something keeps Love away And I can feel it So love me right now Though it won't last Girl don't make me try 'Cause I'll lose you forever Every time Every time But every time I try To put our love out Like a fire You keep me in your reach And every time I try To throw away my desire You hold me So close And I can feel it So love me right now Though it won't last Girl don't make me try 'Cause I'll lose you forever Every time Every time

I see The lie through the seal Lie through the seal Tonight Through the seal I’ll make the lie my own Mary won’t know This time White fields Of rain over me Rain over me In time White seas This claim distills me Mary won’t drink This wine

Three o’clock in the morning Snowing and I can’t go home Coming down in Kingston Christmas Eve the roads are closed Just like Walter Gibson Knowing what the Shadow knows And on their way From Saratoga They burned our fields They burned our homes Candy shop quartet Free coffee and chocolate Dreaming of the pine needles Waiting for my next set Hallucinating wonders Drying out like Benedict And on their way From Saratoga They burned our fields They burned our homes They burned our homes They burned our homes Commander of the troops I tried to capture Bemis Heights Talking in tongues They couldn’t get to me on time Forced to retreat I turned and ran to safety in the pines And on their way From Saratoga They burned our fields They burned our homes

From the dust I come To the the dust I return From the dust I come To the the dust I return From the roofs I cry From the roofs I cry From the roofs I cry From the roofs I cry From the dust I come To the the dust I return From the dust I come To the the dust I return
8.
Tonight's the night That we're alone So baby turn the lights down low Girl our love is gonna live Forever All it took was just One kiss You're the one I'm gonna miss Girl our love is gonna live Forever Soon we will be far apart But girl you've gone and Touched my heart And tomorrow I'm gonna love you Just like I do today

I know If we kissed Then love Would follow Follow Through the rain And the snow I know If we touched We'd lose Our sorrow Sorrow Oh the rain Could never know
10.
Nobody has to know Girl we've fallen so in love It was just a year ago And you've kept it to yourself Nobody has to know Nobody has to know Nobody has to know Girl our love has grown so strong Close the shades Unplug the phone How can our love be so wrong Nobody has to know Nobody has to know Nobody has to know Girl we've fallen so in love It was just a year ago And you've kept it to yourself Nobody has to know Nobody has to know

Ray of light I never see Through the passing clouds Or through the trees When you left Into the pouring rain I knew I’d never See you again Ray of light Won’t shine through When love is through When love is through Late one night I heard you at my door But I pretended like I wasn’t home Please forgive Me for what I’ve done But you know I would’ve done it Like I did before Ray of light Won’t shine through What can I do What can I do Ray of light I never see Through the passing clouds Or through the trees When you left Into the pouring rain I knew I’d never See you again Ray of light Won’t shine through When love is through When love is through
