Barcarolle

by Tom Waits


A cloud lets go of the moon
Her ribbons are all out of tune
She is skating on the ice
In a glass in the hands of a man
That she kissed on a train
And the children are all gone into town
To get candy and we are alone in the house here
And your eyes fall down on me
And I belong only to you
The water is filling my shoes
In the wine of my heart there´s a stone
In a well made of bone
That you bring to the pond
And I´m here in your pocket
Curled up in a dollar
And the chain from your watch around my neck
And I´ll stay right here until it´s time

The girls all knit in the shade
Before the baby is made
And the branches bend down
To the ground here to swing on
I´m lost in the blond summer grass
And the train whistle blows
And the carnival goes
Till there´s only the tickets and crows here
And the grass will all grow back

And the branches spell ´Alice´
And I belong only to you
