Burnin’ Soul

At the end of the day
In the land of wood and water
When my skin gone dry
I will pass this to my daughterI will pass my burnin’ soul to my daughter

When my time has passed
And the cyclone is unwinding
May the goods come back
And the fire of my soul is blinding

I will take my burnin’ soul down to the harbor
I will pass my burnin’ soul to my daughter

Kingston soul where I lay my head
Kingston soul where I made my bed
Kingston soul where I lay my head
For you

Getting close to the shore
See my white trail of flowers
Clean my hands with the sand
Final embers of my fire

I will take my burnin’ soul down to the harbor
I will pass my burnin’ soul to my daughter

Kingston soul where I lay my head
Kingston soul where I made my bed
Kingston soul where I lay my head
For you

Kingston soul where I lay my head
Kingston soul where I made my bed
Kingston soul where I lay my head
For you

And I lay down my soul for you
And I lay down my soul for you

There is no war between us, Desire
Ghosts don’t bleed little child
Come and rest with me
But stay a while

And I lay down my soul for you
And I lay down my soul for you
And I lay down my soul for you
And I lay down my soul for you
