Long way going to
Get my medicine
Sky's the autumn grey of
A lonely wren
Piano from a window played
Gone tomorrow, gone
I found it in the street
At first I did not see
Lying at my feet a
Trampled rose
Passing the hat in church
It never stops going round
You never pay just once
To get the job done
What I done to me, I done
To you,
What happened to
The trampled rose?
In the muddy street, with
The fireworks and leaves
A blind man with a cup I asked
Would he play "Kisses Sweeter
Than Wine"
I know that rose like I
Know my name, the
One I gave my love
It was the same, now
I find it in the street
A trampled rose


from Real Gone (Remastered), released October 5, 2004
