Saint of Circumstance

This song is by Grateful Dead and appears on the album Go To Heaven (1980).

This must be heaven
Tonight, I crossed the line
You must be the angel
I thought I might never find
Was it you I heard singing
Oh while I was chasing dreams
Driven by the wind
Like the dust that blows around
And the rain falling down?

But I never know
(Sure don't know)
I never know, never know
(Sure don't know)

This must be heaven
'Cause here's where the rainbow ends
And at last it's the real thing
Or close enough to pretend

When that wind blows (wind blows)
And the night starts to fall
I can hear the sirens call
It's a certain sort of sound
And the rain falling down, rain falling down
Rain falling down, rain falling down

Holes in what's left of my reason
Holes in the knees of my blues
Odds against me been increasing
But I'll pull through

Never could read no road-map
Now, I don't know what the weather might do
Hear that witch wind whining
See that dog star shining
I got a feeling there's no time to lose
No time to lose

I never know
(Sure don't know)
I will never know, no, no
(Sure don't know)

Well, it's been heaven
Even rainbows will end
Now, my sails are filling
The wind so willing
And I'm good as gone again
I'm still walking
So I'm sure that I can dance
Just a saint of circumstance
Just a tiger in a trance
And the rain falling down, rain falling down
Rain falling down, rain falling down

Rain falling down
Rain falling down
Rain falling down
Rain falling down

Well, I never know now
Just don't know
Just don't know

Well, sure don't know what I'm going for
Sure don't know
But I'm gonna go for it for sure
Yeah for sure, yeah for sure

Well, sure don't know what I'm going for
Just don't never know, never never know
But I'm gonna go for it for sure
No no no, that's for sure, yeah for sure

Sure don't know what I'm going for
Just don't never never know, no no
But I'm gonna go for it for sure
That's for sure

Sure don't know what I'm going for
Yeah, maybe going on a dream, going on a dream now
But I'm gonna go for it for sure
Maybe going on a feeling, maybe going on a feeling
Maybe going on a feeling
