The Riddle Lyrics

The Riddle by Gigi D'Agostino  

CD  ·  DVD  ·  Sheet music



The Riddle (music starts)

I got two strong arms
blessings of babylon
time to carry on and try
for sins and false alarms
so to america the brave
wise men save

(Chorus)
near a tree by a river
there's a hole in the ground
where an old man of Aran
goes around and around
and his mind is a beacon
in the veil of the night
for a strange kind of fashion
there's a wrong and a right
he'll never, ever fight over you

(Bridge)
I got time to kill
sly looks in corridors
without a plan of yours
a blackbird sings on bluebird hill
thanks to the calling of the wild
wise men's child.

I got plans for us
nights in the scullery
and days instead of me
I only know what to discuss
oh for anything but light
wise men fighting over you

it's not me you see
pieces of valentine
with just a song of mine
to keep from burning history
seasons of gasoline and gold
wise men fold

(Chorus)
near a tree by a river
there's a hole in the ground
where an old man of Aran
goes around and around
and his mind is a beacon
in the veil of the night
for a strange kind of fashion
there's a wrong and a right
he'll never, never fight over you

(Bridge)
I got time to kill
sly looks in corridors
without a plan of yours
a blackbird sings on bluebird hill
thanks to the calling of the wild
wise men's child.
