The Want Of A Nail Lyrics

 

The Want Of A Nail Song Lyrics


I've been wrong
I had plans so big
But the devil's in the details
I left out one thing
No one to love me
And no one to love

For the want of a nail (the world was lost)
For the want of a nail (the world was lost)
For the want of a nail (the world was lost)
For the want of a nail (the world was lost)

For the want of a nail, the shoe was lost
For the want of a shoe, the horse was lost
For the want of a horse, the rider was lost
For the want of a rider, the message was lost

For the want of a rider, the message was lost
For the want of a message, the battle was lost
For the want of a battle, the war was lost
For the want of a war, the kingdom was lost

What's all this talk about horses and war?
Put yourself in the place of the man at the forge
And day after day you live a life without love
Til the morning you can't take it anymore
And you don't get up

Multiply it a billion times
Spread it all around the world
Put the curse of loneliness on every boy and every girl
Until everybody's kickin', everybody's scratchin'
Everything seems to fail,
And it was all for the want of a nail
