A woman came and said to me
My fate was on my face
It told her that my stars were crossed
And it was time to leave this place
She took a book and read to me
The words came quick and fast
All about some mighty storm
And floods that came to pass
She said the signs are written clear
Like story?s from the past

She seemed so sure I took her word
And told you I was gone
What we had was not that bad
But love won?t wait that long
I told you, friend, that things all end
And lifetimes come and go
And when you said I?ve lost my head
I see that you don?t know
That sometimes signs are written clear
Like footprints in the snow

I set out for a place I?d heard
Where the willows reach the ground
And wild thyme blows on woodbine banks
And sun shines all year round
But all my hopes of a brand new day
Lay false behind a mask
The world is full of frozen love
And ice along the path
You can see the signs are written clear
Like frost upon the glass

I found instead a winter bed
And wolves against my door
The poets and the holy men
Left whisky on the floor
For forty days the devil came
And tempted me with light
I said my soul was mine alone
And left before the fight
Sometimes the signs are written clear
Like shadows in the night
On the road again I met two men
And we went from place to place
But one got lost where the rivers crossed
Was gone without a trace
Well until this day I just can?t say
If he swam or if he drowned
But the other said ?I believe he?s dead?
Now our luck would turn around
He said our signs are written clear
Like tracks along the ground

He said I?d find some peace of mind
And a righteous way of life
He offered up a loving cup
And said ?you?ll be my wife?
I said I?d hope he?d understand
But things just weren?t that black
He said that some folks can?t be helped
And I?d better not come back
He said my signs were written clear
Like stations down the track

I travelled ?til I lost the will
And all my hope was gone
And even when the means were right
Things ended up all wrong
Then all the troubles I?d stacked up
Came tumbling from the store
All the storms and floods weren?t past
But coming back for more
Sometimes the signs are written clear
Like shipwrecks on the shore

So now I know the way to go
Don?t need to search in vain
Returning to the life I knew
Is the way to start again
To follow fate is all it takes
But I guess I should have known
You never really go that far
And all the roads lead home
Sometimes the signs are written clear
In flesh and blood and bone
