At long weary last
This game is over
The sins of the past
Fled from my shoulder

The sleep that I need
Is all that I ask
In thought and in deed
I have burnt the mask

Here I am
Here I am

Enchantment is broken
I merged with the crowd
Oaths have been spoken
Inside and out loud
Emerging from under
Motions of God
In tears and in wonder
I ventured abroad

Here I am
Here I am

Can you walk a smithereen
Can you walk a smithereen
Closer to me
Could you love a thimbleful
Could you love a thimbleful
Harder for me

Encountered a loathly hag
Blood on the snow
She said "I've a burden to drag
And leagues to go"
I left her down by the seaside
In someone's hall
By dawn's empty light I cried
To no-one at all

Here I am
Here I am

Can you walk a smithereen
Can you walk a smithereen
Closer to me
Could you love a thimbleful
Could you love a thimbleful
Harder for me

I swing between
Tears and wonder
I swing between
Tears and wonder
I swing between
Tears and wonder
I swing between
Tears and wonder

Can you walk a smithereen
Can you walk a smithereen
Closer to me
Could you love a thimbleful
Could you love a thimbleful
Harder for me
Harder for me

This tune is ok enough. I like the dynamic between verse and chorus. The vocalist style isn't very desirable to me, but another song will be coming soon...so...yay us!
Oh, it is from 1969. Sounds way younger.
Wow.  Rock & Roll.
