Messenger

MESSENGER

O she’s a messenger
With body bold and bare
You’ve always been a gentleman
But tonight you can’t help but stare
Your senses have been soaked
It must be more than smoke
Floating on the air
O she’s a messenger
If she knows, she doesn’t care

O she’s a messenger
And slowly from within
Her message has been amplified
And written on your skin
Despite what you maintain
She drives you like a train
Here she comes again
O she’s a messenger
Where you going, where you been

And all the amber lantern lights
Preside upon her path tonight
The stars have long decided where she’ll go
There is no chance to grasp or guide
The absent reigns the terrible tide
The stars have long decided where she’ll go

O she’s a / O she’s a
Catch you in the morning she’s a long season
O she’s a messenger tonight

You drove your truck to Michigan
But you couldn’t beat the rain
You registered a motel
But you didn’t use your name
And the audience applauds
On the TV down the hall
You wonder what they’re saying
O she’s a messenger
Who sings a sad refrain.

O she’s a / O she’s a
Catch you in the morning she’s a long season
O she’s a messenger tonight
