The Jangolier

This song is by The Rodchester Kings and appears on the album ...And in Closing (1991).

Here is not where I want to be
The night sky no longer sets me free
And this road seems to go on forever
The future bleak as tomorrow is never

Tonight I will tell all my tales again
Tonight I will wish that all this would end
Don't start if you haven't 'cause you cannot win
Truth is it just gets darker from here on in

Sing me a song
But sing it to me straight this time
I have no use for
Deception within your rhyme
Sing me a song
About what life should be
Maybe I'll remember
What it once meant to me

The darkened hand rose over the same old strings
The broken voice goes over the same old things
She once loved him but now she has gone away
But she promised him that she would come back someday

Just lie if you know that the truth will hurt
Or just try and with all of your love assert
And maybe this time, unlike the times before
You can hold on to something that you adore

The jangolier wanders the day alone
A captive to his fear a walking ghost as cold as stone
Like clockwork he does all that he knows how
And when he left this place he left with a crooked bow

Here is not where
I ought to be
All this time looking for
Someone to comfort me
I find it funny
That you can walk the world without a care
And after all that time
You haven't gone anywhere
