Losers And Lovers

 I saw the fire.
 I heard them say:
 They would go on dancing there 
 ‘til the breaking of the day.
 Losers and lovers
 Looking for the reason to be glad.

 Down inside the forest,
 Stumbled on a crow,
 Caravans with purple wheels and the people shouting low.
 Losers and lovers
 Forgetting that the world is going mad.

 But it was over,
 Laid myself to rest
 Underneath the warm September sky.
 They're reminiscing
 When all the earth's revolving, 
 The losers and the lovers passing by.

 Pull down the branches
 To make myself a bed
 If it should rain, then I'd be dry.
 I've got my visions
 So let them all ignore me,
 The losers and the lovers passing by.

 My mind, it was heavy.
 My feelings, they were dim.
 I began to doubt in me, and where all have they been?
 There are no more caravans,
 And I am here alone with aging ghosts.

 But it was over,
 Laid myself to rest
 Underneath the warm September sky.
 They're reminiscing
 When all the earth's revolving,
 The losers and the lovers passing by.
 Ah...ah...ah...
