Willie Nelson - The Piper Came Today Lyrics




The dance is over now
As the melody just echoes in the night
Of the love song that I sang, out of tune
To a drummer, out of time
I tripped the light fantastic
And never hearing harmonies were lost
And now I sit alone, in the silence
Looking at the cost

Cause the piper came today
And he was hell to pay
Cause he took my world away
When the piper came today

In the shadows of the dim light
As the piper plays, the cheaters hide
Never giving thought
To the cost, of the never-ending lies
And the sweater played his music
The more is added to the bitter price
For the dance is over now
And the melody just echoes in the night

Cause the piper came today
And he was hell to pay
Cause he took my world away
When the piper came today

Cause he took my world away
When the piper came today

    If the Piper has never came to your world, it is the worst feeling you will ever face. Cause when the piper comes to your world, it will take your life away.
