Don't listen to the vultures

Did you think my love was weakness
or that I am not a man

My heart was made from kindness
I'll still help you if I can

You tell me that your strong now
and that you'll be just fine

Was it not me who saved you
from your peril the last time

Don't trust your new companions
please ask the reason why

As I just see the vultures flying
above you in the sky

So don't take notice of the vultures
or all the things they say

Please just listen to you child
who's hair is now turning grey

And who'll be there for your rescue
many years now down the line

If all we had's forgotten

And the problem is not mine
