The Dust on My Halo

The Dust on My Halo - For a Dreamer

Graham Trust - vocals, bass guitar, acoustic guitar

There’s a lifeline that follows me right down the centuries
And burns like a quasar within me. If you could see into my soul,
There’s a darkness that shines through the dust on my halo.
I’m trying to learn how to say "no". Oh, you can see into my soul.

But oh my God! Lord of all mercy, why would you desert me?

There’s no reason for learning to think in a straight line.
The pleasure and pain would be still mine if I could see into your soul,
Where the truth goes finally fading away now,
The light of the moon by the day now - If I could see into your soul.

But oh my God! Lord of all mercy, why would you curse me?

There’s dust on my halo. There’s dust on my halo.

There’s a lifeline that follows me right down the centuries
And burns like a quasar within me. If you could see into my soul,
Where the truth goes - there’s nothing to see or to say now.
We might as well all turn away now. Beware of the places we go.

Oh. Come on.

There’s dust on my halo. There’s dust on my halo.
