    Lyrics

    Well, she stands all alone with her sorrow
    Like a bird that's afraid to sing
    She lives for the pain tomorrow will bring

    Will she call if she starts to fall or will she silent go?

    Well, her scarlet jasmine is tucked away
    'Neath her vest of purest gold
    And her eyes can't hardly help but say I'm cold

    Will she call if she starts to fall or will she silent go?

    Well, the winds that howl behind her face
    Through the falsehoods in her mind
    Ain't strong enough to leave her lace behind

    Well, her shelter starts to tremble
    As it holds her mind away
    From the golden flashin' cymbals that say

    Will she call if she starts to fall or will she silent go?

    When a virgin mistress again she comes
    Now no longer is she free
    To play upon her gypsy drums for me

    Will she call if she starts to fall or will she silent go?
    Will she call when she starts to fall or will she silent go?
