Poet's Price

from by Daniel Steinbock

lyrics

I kicked the door so closed
It won't open anymore
I heard the blackbird sing
For the last time

And every time I pay
That old poet's price
I thank you, babe, for doin' me wrong
Thank you road, for making it harder
Thank you love, for leaving me out in the rain
Thank you for making me pay

I woke at midnight
Hazy in a half moon
I watched the white waves break
On the coastline
And I'm tossed upon the waves
That roll inside

And every time I pay
That old poet's price
I thank you, babe, for doin' me wrong
Thank you road, for making it harder
Thank you love, for leading me out in the rain
Thank you...

Every road that I took
Every song that I sang
Every lover I lost
Every friend who lay dying
Every con I played
Every god that I prayed to
When I felt so crazy
Like I was dying

Is a white bird rising over me
Now gone
Gone
Gone

I kicked the door so closed
It won't open anymore
I heard the blackbird sing
For the last time
