lyrics

In the stillness of Autumn
Cold as the bottom
Dark as the old witch's brew
A siren called Clarity Freely
Began to dismantle
The bricks in this Room

Heckles and jeers and the crowd disappears
All good that comes from the earth
She tells me she knows that I know
That she's lyin' sometimes
Heaven unwinds

Aie-yaie-yaie-yaie-yaie
It was only a moment too soon
Aie-yaie-yaie-yaie-yaie
It was only a moment, only a moment too soon

Snow drizzled off of this tinwhistle roof
Sparks could be seen in the air
A cedar tree promptly called perfume
Moonlight distilled in the air

Heaven speak to me quickly
Just give me one God-awful sign
Shine in the brightness of everything faithful
Tell me it's all in my mind

Don't be unkind when you look to the future
Don't be a stranger in all of this grace
Open your curtains and shatter your windows
Carry me off to the race

Don't tell me
Aie-yaie-yaie-yaie-yaie
It was only a moment too soon
Aie-yaie-yaie-yaie-yaie
It was only a moment too soon...
