LAZY WATERS

WHEN I WAS YOUNG,

I WOULD GO DOWN BY A RIVER,

JUST ABOUT A MILE FROM MY HOME,

A MILLION MILES FROM EVERYONE.

MY EYES COULD SEE YOUR WATERS,

MY EARS COULD HEAR YOUR SONG.

 

OH TO BE WISE AGAIN,

TO GET BACK TO YOUR LAZY WATERS,

I NEVER NEEDED ANYONE BUT YOU.

 

LITTLE BOYS ARE STRANGE,

NO ONE KNOWS THAT THEY HAVE MAGIC.

I KEPT IT IN MY POCKET,

CONCEALED FROM EVERYONE.

BUT IíD CLIMB THE HIGHEST TREE

TO SING A BIRD MY SONG...

 

WE MOVED TO THE CITY,

I SAID I DIDNíT MIND,

I THOUGHT YOUíD STAY INSIDE ME,

ITíS EASY WHEN YOUíRE YOUNG.

BUT AS WE RODE AWAY

I KNEW THAT YOU WERE GONE...
