When I was young, my Father told me
"Don't give your Love before its time
Don't give your hand to a man not worthy
With a restless heart and a troubled mind

He said, "Lo, my darling Daughter
You know I'd surely rather die
Than to see you lonesome and ill-fated
With a restless heart and a troubled mind

But, I was young, and I would not listen
I mistook lust for something kind
Now, I'm stuck here in a wallless prison
With a restless heart and a troubled mind

Mother said to me, "My heart's a-breaking
I cannot bear to hear you crying
My dear, I always told you that there's no saving
A restless heart and a troubled mind

Brother, Brother, please hear me calling
Sister, Sister, please help me find
Some place to be and someone to save me
From a restless heart and a troubled mind
