Burning of the midnight lamp / Red House


The morning is dead
And the day is too
There’s nothing left here to greet me
But the velevet moon
All my loneliness
I have felt today
It’s a little more than enough
To make a man throw himself away
And i continue
To burn the midnight lamp
Alone

Now the smiling portrait of you
Is stll hangin’ on my frowning wall
It really doesn’t really doesn’t bother me too much at all
It’s just the, uh, ever falling dust
That makes it so hard for me to see
That forgotten ear-ring laying on the floor
Facing coldly toward the door
And i continue
To burn the midnight lamp
All alone

Burn
Lonely lonely, yeah
Lonely lonely lonely
Loneliness is such a, drag

So here i sit to face
That same old fire place
Gettin’ ready for the sam old explosion
Goin’ through my mind
And soon enough time will tell
About the circus and the wishingwell
And someone who will buy and sell for me
Someone who will toll my bell
And i continue to burn the midnight lamp
Alone

Darlin’ do you here me callin’ you
So lonely
Lonely!

Milano

Yeah
Yeah
There’s a red house, over yonder
That’s where my baby stays
Yeah
There’s a red house over yonder, baby
That’s where my baby stays

I ain’t been home to see my baby
In about a ninety-nine and one half days
It’s about time to see her
Wait minute something’s wrong
This key won’t unlock this door
Wait a minute something’s wrong, baby
The key won’t unlock the door
Yeah
I got a bad bad feeling
That my baby don’t live here no more
She ain’t comin’ about is she
That’s alright i still got my guitar

Look out baby
Yeah, look out
Yeah that’s alright
Yeah haha

I might as well a go on back down
Go back across yonder over the hill
Might as well go back over yonder
Way back over yonder across the hill
That’s where i came from

Cause if my baby don’t love me no more
I know here sister will!
Yeah
