Thread Name: ADD: Silver Coin (Hiscock)(from Archie Fisher)
Subject: RE: Lyr Req: Silver coin?
Hunter Muskett

Composer: Terry Hiscock
1/ Now that I'm older though I'm not old enough to know
        what it is to be lonely, what it is to be without a home
        but I've a friend nearby who loves me rain or shine.
        Don't ask me why but her younger eyes are so much older eyes than mine.

2/ I thought I was well-read, wouldn't have to ask her for a lead
        'til I read what her eyes said, then I knew there was nothing more to read,
        nothing more to do and nothing more to say but give all my words away
        to someone who needs them who can't find a girl like you

3/ And I ran all the way here to be the first to see the morning star.
        There were others before me for the sounds of beauty travel far,
        I hear it loud and clear and it rings like the silver coin
        thrown down on stone,
        'though I'm lost in the crowd I know you're around me somehow
