Ghost of gold

from by Richard Lewis

/

lyrics

sleep tight, silver sister
the moon is bright
the wind's a whisper
your mother's at the altar cold
whistling for the ghost of gold
the ivy creeps
along the parquet

all the while baby sleeps
nothing seems to matter
all the while baby sleeps
nothing seems to matter

stand firm, silver sister
the flesh is weak
the skin will blister
women, children
young and old
cry for anguish
weep for cold
cloaked in prayer and
catechism

all the while baby sleeps
nothing seems to matter
all the while baby sleeps
nothing seems to matter
