Lepers Song - Lyrics by Barclay James Harvest, The


Lyrics

Well i feel like i've come to the end of a long long road
My body's tired and my mind's got no place to go
The end of the line's where i'm at, 'cos there's nothing left to be
Just a burnt out case, god, the leper and me
Well i feel like i've come to the end of a long long day
The victim of a life that i tried to give away
A prisoner of the isles where there's nothing left to be
Just a burnt out case, god, the leper and me

Well i feel like i've come to the end of a long long road
My body's tired and my mind's got no place to go
The end of the line's where i'm at, 'cos there's nothing left to be
Just a burnt out case, god, the leper and me
