lyrics

little maisy plays
she makes me crazy
she sings herself a morning song

little maisy prays
in a field of waving daisies
the sun’s going down she don’t have long
she bites her nails and rolls her eyes

the sun shines bluer
than the wind blows
the hangman’s shopping her the ropes

time flies faster than
her little legs can carry her
the moon flies higher than her hopes
she’ll comb her hair and cross her eyes

make it go away
more than my eyes can see
make it go away
let this lonely man be

little maisy lies in
a field of dying lilies
in her sunday dress her eyes are closed

they asked me if i’d be okay
he said he will, but will he?
he feels so small inside his clothes
she holds her breath and drives me wild

make it go away
more than my eyes can see
make it go away
let this lonely man be
