CROWN OF THORNS
words & music copyright 2001 Gaunce/Miller

The angel of good fortune has taken flight
And left no forwarding address

The paparazzi have all disappeared
Like smoke from some ?ol apparition?s cigarette

I?m a taker, not a giver
And you?ve earned this crown of thorns
Lay me down by the river
You make me wanna live forever

Your silver wings have rusted & oxidized
Like that crumpled old Buick that you used to drive
And walking with mere mortals isn?t good for you
Your choking on the atmosphere of humanness

I?m a taker, not a giver
And you?ve earned this crown of thorns
Lay me down by the river
You make me wanna live forever

Stand out of the light,
?till you get it just right -
It?s alright , it?s alright now

Solo

Now I?m a taker, not a giver
And you?ve earned this crown of thorns
Lay me down by the river
You make me wanna live forever
