Play me Old King Cole
All your hearts now seem so far from me

Of a kingdom beyond the skies.
It hardly seems to matter now.
Play me my song.
Play me my song.

Just a little bit more time,

Here it comes again.
Here it comes again.
Old King Cole was a merry old soul,
So he called for his pipe,
And he called for his fiddlers three.
But the clock, tick-tock,
And I want, and I feel, and I know, and I touch,

Brush back your hair, and let me get to know your face.
Brush back your hair, and let me get to know your flesh.
I've been waiting here for so long
It doesn't seem to matter now
Casting doubt on all I have to say.
Why don't you touch me, touch me,
