Lyrics

I heard the whisper in the wind say
Son you'll never be like me.
I hold a hand full of rain drops
& hand them out evenly.
Over everything that I love
& I will always make you smile
You know the colour in your eyes
Is the colour of my life.

I took a walk to the circus
Just like I do every day
But in amongst all the poison
I spot the woman made of clay
Well she don't have to be perfected
So could she ever come my way
I'll give a rose to her mother
& tell her i'll be here to stay.

I wave at the smiling sun
when she winks at me in the early morning.
I watch as the waves they break
& the crows signal their warning.

The drunken man well he stumbles
& he gets home before the light.
Before his bed & then he crumbles
I hear him whisper to the night
I never thought that i'd be this guy
& the stereo plays a song
It eases out through the morning
Where it's taken so very long.

Well Juliet knows a secret
Of a place she never been before
She tells the men who'll never keep it
The thoughts are running through her head
Now I'm back here where I started
& my pen is running out of ink
The curtains here are slightly parted
It makes it easier to think.

I wave at the smiling sun
when she winks at me in the early morning.
I watch as the waves they break
& the crows signal their warning.

So look at me little lady
Show me the brightness in your eyes
Cause mine are feeling pretty shady
I'm gunna lay with you tonight
& tell you stories of an old man
Who said son you'll never be like me
He holds a hand full of rain drops
& then he whispers in the wind.
