Shawn Mullins - Darby's castle lyrics

Darby's castle by Shawn Mullins

See the ruin on the hill 
where the smoke is hangin still 
like an echo of an age long forgotten 
there's a story of a home 
crushed beneath those blackened stones 
and the roof that fell before the beams were rotten 
Cecil Darby loved his wife 
and he labored all his life 
to provide her with material possessions 
and he built for her a home 
of the finest wood and stone 
and the building soon became his sole obsession 
oh it took 300 days 
for the timbers to be raised 
and the silhouette was seen from miles around 
and the gables reached as high 
as the eagles in the sky 
but it only took one night to bring it down 
when Darby's castle tumbled to the ground 
though they shared a common bed 
there was precious little said 
in the moments that were set aside for sleepin' 
for his busy dreams were filled 
with the rooms he'd yet to build 
and he never heard young Helen Darby weepin' 
then one night he heard a sound 
as he layed his pencil down 
and traced it to her door and turned the handle 
and the pale light of the moon 
through the window of the room 
split the shadows where two bodies lay entangled
