the storyman lyrics – chris de burgh

i lived my life in the words of a storyman,
watched my dreams from the years gone by,
heard my voice in the songs of a storyman,
always by my side, always by my side;

i saw him first in a castle by candlelight,
turning round with a golden key,
i heard a train far away, and a whistle blow,
like a baby’s cry, ’twas like a baby’s cry;

ravens stood on the walls of jerusalem,
sailors danced at the borderline,
light a fire on the road to the ferryman,
emotions running high, in the summertime;

take me back to the places i’ve never been,
take me back to another time,
take me back to a world i have never seen,
only in my mind, only in my mind;

late last night i met up with a lady-love,
dressed in red, didn’t say goodbye,
carry me to the last time i showed her what
tender hands can do, and i’ll be missing you;

take me back to the places i’ve never been,
take me back to another time,
take me back to a world i have never seen,
only in my mind, only in my mind;

follow the light that’s shining on to where we will be going,
up to heaven, paradise, or to the heart divine;
it’s in the echoes of a child, waiting for the journey,
the spirit of one world;

oh take me back to the places i’ve never been,
take me back to another time,
take me back to a world i have never seen,
only in my mind, only in my mind;

i lived my life in the words of a storyman…
