​Ornamental Hermit

This song is by William D Drake and appears on the album The Rising of the Lights (2011).

Of all the things you did for me, the one most splendid
Was to christen a place in me where I can be a most contended person
Angling for an ornamental hermit in the garden
My recipe by his decree, a lifetime of denial
And as our hearts may lie a-fluttering like dying birds
Let's chant a fabulous refrain
Overflowing with joy and with pain
Overflowing, oh
Overflowing, overflowing

Of all the things you did for me, the one most splendid
Was to christen a place in me
Where I can undoubtedly be
Overflowing, oh
Overflowing, overflowing

Living on the wing
Is not always my favourite thing
Though sometimes there's much to be said
For letting go of heavy head
And soaring through the deep blue sky
And flying higher and higher
Without the fear, without the fuss
That so beset poor Icarus
