      About "The Cape"

      Lyrics for Kathy Mattea - "The Cape"

      Eight years old with a floursack cape
      Tied all around his neck
      He climbed up on the garage
      Figurin' what the heck
      He screwed his courage up so tight
      The whole thing came unwound
      He got a runnin' start and bless his heart
      He headed for the ground

      He's one of those who knows that life
      Is just a leap of faith
      Spread your arms and hold your breath
      Always trust your cape

      All grown up with a floursack cape
      Tied around his dreams
      He was full of spit and vinegar
      He was bustin' at the seams
      He licked his finger and he checked the wind
      It was gonna be do or die
      He wasn't scared of nothin' boys
      And he was pretty sure he could fly

      He's one of those who knows that life
      Is just a leap of faith
      Spread your arms and hold your breath
      Always trust your cape

      Old and grey with a floursack cape
      Tied all around his head
      He's still jumpin' off the garage
      Will be till he's dead
      All these years the people said
      He's actin' like a kid
      He did not know he could not fly
      So he did

      He's one of those who knows that life
      Is just a leap of faith
      Spread your arms and hold your breath
      Always trust your cape
