"Lady Midnight" lyrics

Lady Midnight

I came by myself
To a very crowded place
I was looking for someone
Who had lines in her face

I found her there
But she was past all concern
I asked her to hold me
I said, "Lady, unfold me"
But she scorned me
And she told me
I was dead
And I could never return

Well, I argued all night
Like so many have before
Saying, "Whatever you give me
I seem to need so much more"

Then she pointed at me
Where I kneeled on her floor
She said, "Don't try to use me
Or slyly refuse me
Just win me or lose me
It is this
That the darkness is for"

I cried, "Oh, Lady Midnight
I fear that you grow old
The stars eat your body
And the wind makes you cold"

"If we cry now," she said
"It will just be ignored"
So I walked through the morning
Sweet early morning
I could hear my lady calling
"You've won me
You've won me, my lord"

You've won me
You've won me, my lord
Yes, you've won me
You've won me, my lord
Ah, you've won me
You've won me, my lord
Ah, you've won me
You've won me, my lord
