The Best Folk Today

December 13, 2016



Ophelia
Oh, Ophelia, you've been on my mind girl since the flood
Oh, Ophelia, heaven help a fool who falls in love

This is the part to show how he feels about her



Sleep On The Floor
Pack yourself a toothbrush dear
Pack yourself a favorite blouse
Take a withdrawal slip
Take all of your savings out
'Cause if we don't leave this town
We might never make it out

This is the part when she missed her chance with him



Angela
From the second time around
The only love I ever found
Oh Angela it's a long time coming

Home at last

She married another man and pregnant but later on she realized that she have to go and do what she always wanted to do since she was younger. But it's too late, really. It's OK too even if it's too late.



Cleopatra
I was Cleopatra, I was young and an actress
When you knelt by my mattress, and asked for my hand
I was sad you asked it, as I laid in a black dress
With my father in a casket, I had no plans

And I left the footprints, the mud stained on the carpet
And it hardened like my heart did when you left town
But I must admit it, that I would marry you in an instant
Damn your wife, I'd be your mistress just to have you around

But I was late for this, late for that, late for the love of my life
And when I die alone, when I die alone, when I die I'll be on time


While the church discouraged, any lust that burned within me
Yes my flesh, it was my currency, but I held true
So I drive a taxi, and the traffic distracts me
From the strangers in my backseat, they remind me of you

And the only gifts from my Lord were a birth and a divorce
But I've read this script and the costume fits, so I'll play my part


I was Cleopatra, I was taller than the rafters
But that's all in the past now, gone with the wind
Now a nurse in white shoes leads me back to my guestroom
It's a bed and a bathroom
And a place for the end

I won't be late for this, late for that, late for the love of my life
And when I die alone, when I die alone, when I die I'll be on time

Thank you The Lumineers for making all these great folks for me, and your other fans too.
