lyrics

I will never love the Admiral’s Son
I will never shake the hand of Kings
I will never know the weight of his heart or his gun
I will never love the Admiral’s Son

Be kind to me brother when you're talking
Be kind to me mother when you're drink
For me

Sleeping from time to time
Leaping on lily pads
If I ever find the one whose mess matches mine
I’ll be sleeping from time to time

Be kind to me brother when you're talking
Be kind to me mother when you're drink
For me

Let me rest in your photograph albums
Oh, let me rest in the corner of your thoughts
Let me rest in the back of your Bibles
Where the bargained and broken belong
Where the bargained and broken belong

I will never wear a diamond ring
Brother, it just ain’t my style
If the hands of love are empty, they’ll be clean
I will never wear a diamond ring

Be kind to me brother when you're talking
Be kind to me mother when you're drink
For me

Let me rest in the photograph albums
Oh, let me rest in the corner of your thoughts
Let me rest in the back of your Bibles
Where the bargained and broken belong
Where the bargained and broken belong
