Bleed On Me


Is the day bleeding on your dirty gold

To the bank
To the money lender
To pay for the money
The bank didn't have

To the market
For the oil
For the wine
That God said was mine
For the price He paid

The day He bled on me
As I did the things
Which were more
Than I thought
And much less
Than I expected

The day bled on me
Is it bleeding on you too
Bloody dirty gold

Just Home and Love! the words are small
Four little letters unto each;
And yet you will not find in all
The wide and gracious range of speech
Two more so tenderly complete:
