lyrics

I paid a penny for a puppet god
He did some magic tricks for me
But I was sad to find the magic gone
When I held the strings

I wrapped myself up in a patchwork god
To shield my body from the chill
But I was sad to find the wind and rain
Always found me still

Ooh, ooh, where are you
Ooh, ooh, where are you my love

And in my fingers held a paper god
No fold I could not understand
But as I grasped him all the tighter he
Grew smaller in my hands

So I set fire to these wooden gods
Who for one moment gave me light
And then I held up my two fingers
And walked into the night

Singing ooh, ooh, where are you
Ooh, ooh, where are you, my love

So I walk these wild spaces
To find some foliage still aflame
And how I long to hear the voice
That first called me by my name

I felt your hand upon my shoulder
I heard your whisper on the wind
And I can't shake the feeling that
You're haunting me again
