A live off-the-floor performance of a Tom Waits song. Played an a hundred year old pump organ.

lyrics

You're Innocent When You Dream

The bats are in the belfry
the dew is on the moor
where are the arms that held me
and pledged her love before
and pledged her love before

It's such a sad old feeling
the hills are soft and green
it's memories that I'm stealing
but you're innocent when you dream
you're innocent when you dream

I made a golden promise
that we would never part
I gave my love a locket
and then I broke her heart
and then I broke her heart

It's such a sad old feeling
the hills are soft and green
it's memories that I'm stealing
but you're innocent when you dream
you're innocent when you dream

Running through the graveyard
we laughed, my friends and I
we swore we'd be together
until the day we died
until the day we died

It's such a sad old feeling
the hills are soft and green
it's memories that I'm stealing
but you're innocent when you dream
you're innocent when you dream
