  1. I Must

From the recording Caesar Jones

Lyrics

Once upon a long ago, old wives warned in tales
Mourning birds sang for sorrowful kings
Whose scornful queens had clipped their wings

I wonder what took, that great king to fall?
So heavy hard a mourning bird would call

Was it exchanges, of child simple lines?
Then he found the whole thing magnified

Oh so many words that I cannot say
On the tip of my tongue
As I fall for you more each day
I must stay strong

Through this fever for which there’s no cure
Everyday it kills me more and more

Oh so many words that I cannot say
On the tip of my tongue
As I fall for you more each day
I must stay strong

So the frail and lost would raise, a candle to the night
The brightest flame burns just half it’s life
Our fallen king, had lit both sides

Oh so many words that I have to say
With a slip of my tongue
The mourning bird has sung
