lyrics

i'm not the greatest of men but i mean what i say,
though i mean nothing to you in the cold light of day,
but in the heat of the night, beneath a tobacco stained moon
i am the voice of the rain at the start of the monsoon...

in this garden of delight and shade i am here,
turning cider into apples and bitterness into beer
my cut glass laugh will run through the grass and whisper in your ear -
- steal the honey from the bees and on bended knees tell me why are you here?

because you're not scared of me
but you should be
you're not scared of me
but you should be

i put my hand in yours at the baggage carousel
and we watched a wingless million file through to the short stay hotel,
where they hang up their suits and lie naked and hopeful
that somehow some angel will come and engulf them all.

but don't imagine i don't care about the damage or repair,
i am a man of my word and my price is always fair.
so if you bring the hammers, then i'll bring the wings
and we can talk until sunrise and then see what it brings

because you're not scared of me
but you should be
you're not scared of me
but you should be
