Keep your powder dry and warm
through the coming darkest storm
All the fear that's sent your way
through your eyes you might wash away
When you can
Still your lantern's strong and bright
Even through the darkest night
All those paper tigers
All their lies they might have sold you
Might be wasted on
One so young that you're old again
She walks out through the wind and the rain

They can't give you all those things
No pot of gold no big brass ring
