Lyrics

[Verse 1] Please beware of them that stare They'll only smile to see you while your time away And once you've seen what they have been To win the earth just won't seem worth your night or your day Who'll hear what I say? [Verse 2] Look around, you'll find the ground Is not so far from where you are, but don't be too wise For down below they never grow They're always tired and charms are hired from out of their eyes Never a surprise [Chorus] Take your time and you'll be fine And say a prayer for people there Who live on the floor And if you see what's meant to be Don't name the day or try to say It happened before [Verse 3] Don't be shy, you learn to fly And see the sun when day is done, if only you see Just what you are beneath a star That came to say one rainy day in autumn for free Yes, be what you'll be [Instrumental] [Verse 4] Please beware of them that stare They'll only smile to see you while your time away And once you've seen what they have been To win the earth just won't seem worth your night or your day Who'll hear what I say? [Chorus 2] Open up the broken cup Let goodly sin and sunshine in Yes, that's day And open wide the hymns you hide You find renown while people frown At things that you say But say what you'll say [Outro] About the farmers and the fun And the things behind the sun And the people around your head Who say everything's been said And the movement in your brain Sends you out into the rain
