The Evangelist

from the 2008 album 'The Evangelist'.

I took her out of her world and put her into mine
I took away what she knew, had treasured over time

Letís sail away, baby
I canít explain what I see
Letís sail away, baby
Please try and follow me

I took her out of her home, a cabin near the woods
And took her to this desert with threatening neighbourhoods

Well I believe, baby
I thought it was better for us
Yes I believe, baby
There was gold in that dust

And now I see, baby
I put distance into your own life
Letís sail away, baby
Letís sail into this life

She drove a Golf white diesel, she drove me through the streets
She took me into her world of parks and wooden seats

And I remember, baby
I remember it all
Yes I remember, baby
I remember it all
Letís sail away, baby
I thought it was better for us
And I believe, baby
I believe in us
