lyrics

Can I confess that I cannot conceive
of a world which to live in thout my Genevieve
and in a thousand years, when they find my bones
I hope they're tangled and broken
with those of her own
Oh, Genevieve, best thing I ever saw
Dark as a moonless night, sharp as a raven's claw
Oh, I will attest that there's been no reprieve
of my wanting and wailing for my Genevieve

If you had her my boy, you'd want an hour glass
Tall as the sky through which your whole lives could pass
And I'm just like sand, everyone's fingers I leave
When I'm struck with the beauty of my Genevieve
Oh Genevieve, best girl I ever seen
Just like and actress, up on that silver screen
When her light goes away I'll take my match and sieve
and scour my mind for the memories of my Genevieve

Well, when I was born I came out with ease
Knowing of my lifetime ahead with my Genevieve
She walked like the moonlight on my childhood eaves
Now her hair scatters cross my face with the autumn leave
Oh Genevieve, oh my Genevieve
will you walk into winter with me passed the barren trees?
If you require a sweater, I will weave the sleeves
of a lifetime of loving you, my Genevieve
of a lifetime of loving you, my Genevieve.
