Pete Brown & Piblokto! - If They Could Only See Me Now Parts I & II lyrics

If they could only see me now
Mop the sweat from my successful brow
If they could only see my face
Taste the riches in my hiding place

If they could only catch me up
Drink the dregs from my gold plated cup
If they could only watch me grow
Catch the trickle from my overflow

Heartbreaker – counting coins in the bedroom
Breadmaker – running lives through my fingers

If they could only pick my brain
Find the licks that drive the chicks insane
If they could only get the knack
Of putting fillings back into the crack

In the pieces of time they give to me
I'm sitting on the shelf
In the corners of sky they let me be
Knowing I'm by myself

In the corners of time they let me be
Knowing I'm all alone
In the pieces of sky they give to me
Know that I'm on my own

O when the wagons frown the laughter drowns
That's when I find time
O when the lights are low I have to show
That time is all mine

In the corners of time they let me be
Knowing I'm all alone
In the pieces of sky they give to me
Knowing I'm on my own
…Knowing I'm on my own
