Nine swords've been sleeping o'er my head, ten stones weighing me down in bed.
Eyes, fiery eyes, watching me in my sleep, soft gentle hands've been burying me long and deep
but I've been dreaming of somewhere that I might call my own
and I'm done sleeping in a bed as cold as silver and gold.
There will be one place you have to leave for every place you wanna go.
There might be one face you'd have to grieve for all the hundreds you might know.
