lyrics

Sancho, maybe we were right about my mispent youth
On a terrible horse in some worn out boots
But I've still got my armor and I've still got my pride
But maybe not so much of either

It turns out we were wrong about doing no harm
Because I rode her to death instead of laying down my arms
But I was too old, maybe you were a fool,
Or maybe we were both just cowards.

Hallelujah, hey what can we do?
Hellelujah, thank god I've still got a use

If she were as real as she's insubstantial
Everything could still go the way I planned it all
And I'd still like to lay her down in my bed
But my body's too old to hold her

And I wouldn't have even cared if she didn't exist
If you hadn't rolled your eyes or just once raised your fists
And every time I talked about her like she was somewhere
You forgot what it was like to suffer

Dulcinea, hey why won't you call?
Dulcinea, you hurt the worst of all

Sancho, hey kid
Maybe it's for the best
I mean deception isn't really so much of a crime
So don't act like you got fed up with all of the lies
And there are worse things in this world than heroes to despise
And we can't really tell the difference if we're not infinitely wise
But a certain kind of truth says that no one really dies
And if I'm gonna go now you better start saying your goodbyes
So come on admit that it was worth it
Come on admit that it was worth it
Come on admit that it was worth it
Come on admit that it was worth it

“Reminds me a lot of Fairport Convention [...] The playing and craft are exquisite.“ ~Jon Worley, Aid & Abet

For the most part, timeless [...] like a group of minstrels found electric guitars and wrote an album over the course of 500 years.
