Patti Smith – Dead To The World lyrics
Dead to the world my body was sleeping
On my mind was nothing at all
Come a mist an aire so appealing
I'm here a whispering you summouned I called

I formed me a presence whose aspect was changing
Oh he would shift he would not shift at all
We sat for a while he was very engaging
And when he was gone I was gone on a smile

With a strange way of walking
And a strange way of breathing
More lives than a cat
That let me astray
All in all he captured my heart
Dead to the world and just
Slipped away

I heard me a music that drew me to dancing
Lo I turned under his spell
I opened my coat but he never came closer
I bolted the door and whispered oh well

With a strange way of walking
And a strange way of breathing
More lives than a cat
That let me astray
All in all he captured my heart
Dead to the world and just
Slipped away

I laid in the rushes the air was upon me
Wondering well I just couldn't discern
Will he come back come back to me
Oh I whispered will you ever return

I was feeling sensations in no dictionary
He was less than a breath of shimmer and smoke
The life in his fingers unwound my existence
Dead to the world alive I awoke

With a strange way of walking
And a strange way of breathing
Less than a breath of shimmer and smoke
The life in his fingers unwound my existence
Dead to the world alive I awoke
Alive I awoke
Alive alive I awoke
Alive I awoke
Alive I awoke
Alive
I awoke
I awoke
Alive I awoke
Alive alive-o
Alive alive-o
