Cold Irons Bound

1.

I'm beginning to hear voices and there's no one around

Well, I'm all used up and the fields have turned brown

I went to church on Sunday and she passed by

my love for her is taking such a long time to die

I'm waist deep, waist deep in the mist

It's almost like, almost like I don't exist

I'm twenty miles out of town in cold irons bound

2.

The walls of pride are high and wide,

can't see over to the other side

It's such a sad thing to see beauty decay

It's sadder still, to feel your heart torn away

One look at you and I'm out of control

Like the universe has swallowed me whole

I'm twenty miles out of town in cold irons bound

3.

There's too many people, too many to recall

I thought some of'm were friends of mine; I was wrong about'm all

Well the road is rocky and the hillside's mud

Up over my head nothing but clouds of blood

I found my world, found my world in you

But your love just hasn't proved true

I'm twenty miles out of town in cold irons bound

5.

Oh, the winds in Chicago have torn me to shreds

Reality has always had too many heads

Some things last longer than you think they will

There are some kind of things you can never kill

It's you and you only, I've been thinking about

but you can't see in and it's hard lookin' out

I'm twenty miles out of town in cold irons bound

6.

Well the fat's in the fire, and the water's in the tank

The whiskey's in the jar and the money's in the bank

I tried to love and protect you because I cared

I'm gonna remember forever the joy that we've shared

Looking at you and I'm on my bended knee

you have no idea what you do to me

I'm twenty miles out of town in cold irons bound

Twenty miles out of town in cold irons bound

(Fra CD-en «Time Out Of Mind», 1997)
