Singing Man lyrics

feat. Mark Lanegan


What the hell is going on in the air
There's a lonely cry and a muffled cheer
People come from miles around
Just to hear the sound and then disappear
Behind the microphone in the dark alone
All flesh and bones
And when the band begins
He's like a king right on his throne

And when the man comes singing
It sounded better than other night
The night that I first heard his voice
And I was only there thinking
It touched me more than I thought it might
It shifted to white light

It comes from a different time
From a different place
Of love and grace
People come from miles around
Just to hear the sound
Ringing up for days
Just believe it
You will receive it
Without asking at all
Cause there on the stage
A loving rage that pleases your soul
No asking at all

And when the man comes singing
It sounded better than other night
The night that I first heard his voice
And I was only there thinking
It touched me more than I thought it might
It shifted to white light

This love ain't rich
There's no change of plot
Coming from the singing man
Just believe it
You will receive it
Without asking at all
Cause there on the stage
A loving rage that pleases your soul
No asking at all

And when the man comes singing
It sounded better than other night
The night that I first heard his voice
And I was only there thinking
It touched me more than I thought it might
It shifted to white light
