Build me a city of ashes and horses
Build me a city of clay
Build me a city where I can recline and
Let the night take the day

Build me a city

Build me a castle of mothers and fathers
Build me a castle of stone
Build me a castle to keep out the masses
So I can have winter alone

Build me a castle

If I had a dollar for all of the follies
And thoughts that have passed through my head
I would be richer than cream in the morning
In the coffee that sits by my bed

Build me a castle
