Lyrics

There was a matchstick man standin by the fire in the moonlight

I guess he was a tree or a shadow of me

A lazy eve in the middle of the winter days

In a time long ago, in a winter storm

There was a matchstick man standin by the fire in the moonlight

Little did he know Where the dreamer would go

There were diamonds on the road As I walked through the frozen night

Through a city of ice and the hall of a King

There was a matchstick man standin by the fire in the moonlight

I guess he was a tree or a shadow of me

A lazy eve in the middle of the winter days

In a time long ago, in a winter storm

Sleep in the presence of the frosted sky
Whimsy artists come and lay the story in my eyes (pause)

There was a matchstick man He was standin by the fire in the moonlight

I guess he was a tree or a shadow of me

He was a matchstick man.
