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
The recipe by his decree a lifetime of denial

And as our hearts they 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
