lyrics

Where went Old Elijah, Elijah who is gone?
Please come back poor Elijah
We should never have left him alone
We should never have left him alone

When first I met Elijah he was older than the stones
Alone lived old Elijah
Just stories, skin and bones
Just stories, skin and bones

It made sense in my memory when first I saw Its face
That never would I forget it
Nor would it be replaced
Nor would it ever be replaced

I’d have lived a good and true life just to know Its name
I’d fly it from the parapets
I’d shout it without shame
I’d shout it without shame

Nothing gets you nothing and nothing’s left he was told
Moved on to drier country
You’ll grow when you can grow
You’ll grow when you can grow

The desert night blows cold, the wind whips a devil’s storm
The day screams please forgive me
I’ve bleached the Earth to bone
I’ve bleached the Earth to bone
