I woke up

Performed by Mike Johnston

(NOTE: Lyrics may differ slightly from those shown below)

Now the sun sits on my hand
Oh where are you?
Walking the wind I fly above the shore of the town
To the hills where I can hear
The harbor bells ring slavery
Where the fortune teller sighs to me
Oh, I see your woman in the raw
Ride a mare of stone and howl

I woke up
While morning built
The world with light,
Crossing their hearts,
Twelve sailor boys all stood in a ring
Round our bed,
Out of the grass a dancer rose,
Shivering,
Oh the sailors pointing
Out to sea
And the dancer diving
Up the sky
Sang 'til we forgot the day
