Teachers lyrics

I met a woman long ago
her hair the black that black can go,
Are you a teacher of the heart
Soft she answered no.
I met a girl across the sea,
her hair the gold that gold can be,
Are you a teacher of the heart
Yes, but not for thee.

I met a man who lost his mind
in some lost place I had to find,
follow me the wise man said,
but he walked behind.

I walked into a hospital
where none was sick and none was well,
when at night the nurses left
I could not walk at all.

Morning came and then came noon,
dinner time a scalpel blade
lay beside my silver spoon.

Some girls wander by mistake
into the mess that scalpels make.
Are you the teachers of my heart
We teach old hearts to break.

One morning I woke up alone,
the hospital and the nurses gone.
Have I carved enough my Lord
Child, you are a bone.

I ate and ate and ate,
no I did not miss a plate, well
How much do these suppers cost
We'll take it out in hate.

I spent my hatred everyplace,
on every work on every face,
someone gave me wishes
and I wished for an embrace.

Several girls embraced me, then
I was embraced by men,
Is my passion perfect
No, do it once again.

I was handsome I was strong,
I knew the words of every song.
Did my singing please you
No, the words you sang were wrong.

Who is it whom I address,
who takes down what I confess
Are you the teachers of my heart
We teach old hearts to rest.

Oh teachers are my lessons done
I cannot do another one.
They laughed and laughed and said, Well child,
are your lessons done
are your lessons done
are your lessons done
