John Lewis Lyrics

A coat of mystery hangs on the wall
Of the thick cool breeze
He tips his charcoal cap
To the girl he won't win back
Even if he acts nicely

Someone died here, don't know why
They found her on the hill
Hair blowing high
John Lewis, won't you come on in
Tell us where you've been

Life on the ferris wheel
That's where laughter lives
And it always will
Peter wipes away all of Sarah's tears
But has nothing
That's ever gonna really comfort her
These haunted grounds
That we cannot see
They're just crowds of children
Planning schemes
It's not so sad when you realize the truth
Well, that's what I've been
Hearing from you

My head in pounding with thoughts of time
Some of which
I hope they'll never find
John Lewis, won't you come on in
Tell us where you've been

I never thought I could ever be true
I'd be standing here accused
With the point of a finger
So wise and so strong
Oh, I swear I hurt no one
They stretched that body
On their little bench
Just to show what they've been up against
Then they throw me in their large calaboose
And nobody's shouting,
"Won't you please turn him loose"

All the ravens straighten their hats and ties
Wash their hands in dirty alibis
John Lewis, won't you come on in
Tell us where you've been

The sun don't sink like it used to do
This whole town feels like it's gonna move
The hills are just memories
Through dark eyes and hate
Can't you hear her
Scratching on my back door gate?
She told me who ripped her pretty dress
Who lured her away with a warm caress
I feel her body around me so cold
They sentence me with all their truth untold

That lonesome hill is always on my mind
But I still think of her smiling in disguise
John Lewis, won't you come on in
Tell us where you've been
