As Wise as a Serpent Lyrics

Artist: Gerry Rafferty
Album: Sleepwalking

Well we sit in empty rooms and dream our lives away
While the spirits come and go without a sound
And just like you and me, they€™re tryin€™ to find a way, find a way, find a way home.

There€™s a full moon in the sky, but that don€™t worry me
I don€™t ever hang my soul out on the line
When the witchin€™ hour comes, I always fly away, fly away, fly away home.

There€™s a light in the city, that comes down from above
Leavin€™ you as wise as a serpent, harmless as a dove
Don€™t blow your tomorrows, don€™t throw away your love
You€™ve got to be as wise as a serpent, harmless as a dove.

Now you once asked me why we can€™t communicate
But it doesn€™t always pay to tell the truth
If I told you right now, you€™d only run away, run away, run away home
So we sit in empty rooms and dream our lives away
While the spirits come and go without a sound
Yeah just like you and me, they€™re tryin€™ to find a way, find a way, find a way home.

There€™s a light in the city, that comes down from above
Leavin€™ you as wise as a serpent, harmless as a dove
Don€™t blow your tomorrows, don€™t throw away your love
You€™ve got to be as wise as a serpent, harmless as a dove.
