There's a deal you can make on a midnight walk alone Look around, listen close, hear it fall from above It will ask what you'd give and what you'd take for it in return I once went on such walk and I found that I'd said
I want someone to take this soul I can't bear to keep it I'd give it just to give And all I will take are the consequences Will somebody take this soul?
Then, of course, nothing replied, nothing speaks to you in the night And I walked my way home, there was no one in sight Save a bird perched upon a streetlight, watchin' me So, I stopped and let it watch 'til I found that it said
