The Decemberists – Cavalry Captain lyrics
[Chorus:]
I am the cavalry captain, I am the remedy to your heart
I am the common collector, I am imprinted upon your stars

[Verse:]
And when you shine, shine your eyes, looking lost, looking bright
We're away on a light brigade and if only for a second
And if only for a time, and if only for a second
And if only for a time we'll be alive
We'll be alive, oh oh oh oh oh

[Chorus:]
I am the cavalry captain, I am the remedy to your heart
I am the common collector, I am imprinted upon your stars

[Verse 2:]
There is a world, there is a time, lookin' calm, lookin' kind
We'll away at the end of day and if only for a second
And if only for a time, and if only for a second
And if only for a time we'll be alive
We'll be alive, oh oh oh oh oh

[Chorus:]
I am the cavalry captain, I am the remedy to your heart
I am the common collector, I am imprinted upon your stars
