lyrics

Wasteland

the hills are blue just like I’m feeling
pretty fish in the river but I can’t see them
why did you love me - i’m sure that i don’t know

i feel the heat of the summer’s night
just like I felt it then in the cabin’s light
we drank so deep a water cold as ice

and in that final hour the answer may be found
falling from the golden heights of summer’s crown
the glacial streams careening, rejoining in one cry
of all that’s come and gone its love
that’s passed you by

it should have been a warm rain on fertile ground
should have been laughter and drinks all around
how such good fortune could make someone so cruel

a single candle’s flame - the fire of believing
or was it carelessness or was I dreaming
to think a simple act of trust could make me such a fool

and in that final hour the answer may be found
emptied from your pockets onto the ground
i won’t be there to meet you or make you feel alive
of all that’s come and gone its love
that passed you by

you took the best years - there’s a difference you know
between a woman’s life and a stone you throw
one in a million stars in the sky tonight
