Galatea (Poor Man)

lyrics

HELLO IN THERE
THERE'S NO NEED TO HIDE
I SEE YOU INSIDE OF THE MARBLE
I HEAR YOUR VOICE
DEEP IN THE BLOCK
THE SURFACE IS COOL
BUT YOUR SKIN IS HOT
NOW I KNOW JUST WHAT I'LL DO
I'LL PICK UP MY CHISEL AND FIND MY WAY TO YOU

OH GALATEA WON'T YOU COME ALIVE
OH GALATEA WON'T YOU COME ALIVE
I AM A POOR MAN
I AM A POOR MAN

I SEE YOUR FACE
START TO EMERGE
AS I FORM THE SHAPE OF YOUR BODY
I WORK ALL NIGHT
TO PEEL BACK THE STONE
YOUR EYES COOL AND DISTANT
YOUR SKIN PALE AS BONE
NOW I LOVE WHAT I SEE
AND NOW GALATEA IT'S TIME FOR YOU TO BE

OH GALATEA WON'T YOU COME ALIVE
OH GALATEA WON'T YOU COME ALIVE
I AM A POOR MAN
I AM A POOR MAN

SOMETHING'S WRONG
WHY DON'T YOU MOVE
WHY DON'T YOU TELL ME YOU LOVE ME
NOW I'LL DO WHAT I MUST
I'LL PICK UP MY CHISEL AND I'LL GRIND YOU INTO DUST

OH GALATEA WHERE HAVE YOU GONE
OH GALATEA WHERE HAVE YOU GONE
I AM A POOR MAN
I AM A POOR MAN
I AM A POOR MAN
I AM A POOR MAN
I AM A POOR MAN
I AM A POOR MAN
