LYRICS

Indian winter spring
A host of forgotten things
Summer drew you inside

Were you mis-born, Lord Jim
In a place not your own
Mistaking sea for home?

Ma, can you tell me please
Before I burn up the leaves
Which train is my sister on?

That the hand of your queen
Be never lost to thee
Not lost to thee in time

Ma, can you tell me please
Before I burn up the leaves
Which train is my killer on?
