Magdalene (young)

When we met I was the pet of every man in town

Then you took my hand and laid my body down

Though they say our love could never ever be

Our hearts are bound my rusty nails because gold’s too fancy for me

Our hearts are bound by rusty nail because gold’s too fancy for me

Backs to the grass we watched clouds pass from noon ‘til 2 or 3

We kissed each other there in the grass beneath the trees

Though one day our hair would turn grey and we would rest in peace

Our hearts are bound by blood and bones because gold’s too fancy for me

Our hearts are bound by blood and bone because gold’s too fancy for me

We were adrift the sun did slip behind the sea again

The starlight shone so bright on his satin skin

The anchor held our boat to the water blue and green

Our hearts are bound by heavy chains because gold’s too fancy for me

Our hearts are bound by heavy chains because gold’s too fancy for me

I breathed his breath and tasted his sweat

and felt his heart pounding

We drank ‘til no wine was left and our heads swam

Oh they were drowning, drowning

I cried at his feet and I watched him bleed the wind moaned soft and sweet

There we watched him die, he was only 33

In the end he said “I’ve always loved you Mary

Our hearts are bound by a crown of thorns because gold’s too fancy for me

Our hearts are bound by a crown of thorns because gold’s too fancy for me
