Rake Songtext
von Townes Van Zandt

Rake Songtext

Well, I used to wake and run with the moon
I lived like a rake and a young man
I covered my lovers with flowers and wounds
My laughter the devil would frighten

The sun she would come and beat me back down
But every cruel day had it's nightfall
I'd welcome the stars with wine and guitars
Full of fire and forgetful

Well, my body was sharp, the dark air clean
And outrage my joyful companion
Whisperin' women how sweet did they seem
Kneelin' for me to command them

And time was like water but I was the sea
I wouldn't noticed it passin'
Except for the turnin' of night into day
And the turnin' of day into cursin'

Well, you look at me now, don't think I don't know
What all your eyes are a-sayin'
Does he want us to believe these ravings and lies
They're just tricks that his brains been a playin'?

A lover of women he can't hardly stand
He trembles, he's bent, he's broken
I've fallen, it's true but I say to you
Hold your tongues until after I've spoken

I was takin' my pride in the pleasures I'd known
I laughed and said I'll be forgiven
But my laughter turned 'round eyes blazing and said
My friend, we're holdin' a wedding

I buried my face but it spoke once again
The night to the day we're a bindin'
And now the dark air is like fire on my skin
And even the moonlight is blinding
Now the dark air is like fire on my skin
And even the moonlight is blinding
