One By One

Silver bracelet
He's a fool, and it's best
Left that ring of silver
On my green desk
Two dragon heads entwine
There we are late night on the floor
Music dancing, music
So young, lovely


I heard amazing stories
Said she should right them down
Why, why not
I'll steal fingers crossing
Fragile in my hand, the bone, the spine
This one likes to sleep in cozy places
 
One by one, they slip away, off to sleep and work again
Our urge is to follow strangers, and keep on moving
 
Their house is breaking up
What is it they say about change
I will miss them
I'm sure it's the right thing


Speaking of change
is it up to me or the wind
Must I wait for the earth to start shaking
to decide a thing
I spent all my money

It's one thing I can do
I change every day

in my mind, it's my way
 
One by one, they slip away, off to sleep and work again
My urge is to let them take me, and keep on moving
 
Money is petty
Money is blood
Money is god
It's where we place our trust
Hold my knowledge for ransom
Trade for food and shelter
6 times 25 equals two stories


Share my blood with you
You share yours with me
Call it a friendship or even marriage
 
One by one, they slip away, off to sleep and work again
My urge is to let them take me, and just keep on dancing
