From the recordings Water of Ten and Mail Order Tattoo
THE BOOK copyright 1999
My life's an open book
Won't you take a look and see
The chapters aren't too long
They're right where they belong You'll see.
No pages yet are torn
The bindings hardly worn by me
It's simply by itself
Just sitting on a shelf To be.
WON'T YOU LET ME BE YOUR BOOK?
LET ME TELL YOU HOW IT'S GONNA READ
LET ME BE YOUR BOOK
LET ME TELL YOU HOW IT'S GONNA BE
The contents aren't complete
'Cause I'm still trying to meet ...the one
She will grace the page
In a brand new age... to come.
Now it's been several years
Some pages wet with tears ... of pain
But as the years slip by
We no longer cry ... at rain. (Chorus)
The cover's quite worn thin
It's got two live within... just look.
They've been growing old
Their story's now been told... The Book.
