Axon Burgess

My name is Axon Burgess I am broken and thin I went to fight for glory and right but only drank more gin Before he died my friend would confide about his sister's beauty if her eyes did look at me her eyes would look right through me What are you doing in this town? Who are you looking for,sir? The girl who's face launched many a ship I am looking for her What are you doing in this town? Who are you looking for,sir? The girl who is a cathedral of butterflies I am looking for her What are you doing in this town? Who are you looking for,sir? The girl who walks as gentle as a fawn I am looking for her
