Balalaika

This song is by Firewater and appears on the album Get Off the Cross, We Need the Wood for the Fire (1996).

When the moon opens up her eye
And the sun bows down his head
You come stealing softly to my bed

When the dogs chase rabbit dreams
Cats are milking up the fire
You dance toward me
Balanced on a slender wire

Balaliaka sing to me
Like a siren from the deep
Balaliaka sing a tender song

Balaliaka soothe my soul
Like you did so long ago
How I miss your sorrow and your smile

Now the trees are whispering
As I lie here in the grass
Waiting for this long, cold night to pass

A thousand eyes are gazing down
Like bullet holes shot into the roof
As I lie here scratching
For a grain or truth

Balaliaka sing to me
Like a siren from the deep
Balaliaka sing a tender song

Balaliaka soothe my soul
Like you did so long ago
How I miss your sorrow and your smile

Balaliaka sing to me
Like a siren from the deep
Balaliaka sing a tender song

Balaliaka soothe my soul
Like you did so long ago
Drink with me before I have to go
Before I have to go
