lyrics

When I was 8 or 9 or 10
I pulled a ribbon from your curly hair
It’s been in my pocket now for all these years
But I could never really hold my breath
Waiting on you babe 
I wasted all those days 
begging for the winding hour

I thought I’d show myself with time
But a light in your window made me chang my mind
Now I’m the crooked teeth in an old man’s smile
I could never really lay my hands
Dirty on your bed
‘Cause the wrinkles in my skin
Are begging for the winding hour 

I’ve been threaded but never stitched
One man’s prayer is another’s pretend
I don’t know which is which
But I’ve been longing to be sought 
If you find me
I could be your wild rover
Sing for me the wild rover
I could be your wild rover babe

When I was 8 or 9 or 10
I rode my bike down your street through the leave so quick
Now your house is gone but those leaves still stick
I could never really say goodbye
If I never said hello
But I had to watch you go
With pity for the winding hour
