Where And How

lyrics

Now, now is the time I love
There’s water upon the trees
And there’s fire among the leaves.

Work, work is the poor man’s sleep
Sleep is the poor man’s drink
As the taillights of summer shrink
They shrink into nothing.

Where and how does you heart beat now?
What makes your soft lips sigh?
For who do your blue eyes cry?

Friends, I used to have some friends
Some real and some pretend
But such are the hearts of men.

Home, I used to feel at home
I’d stay here and feed my own
But no man makes bread I know
By living alone.

Where and how does you heart beat now?
What makes your soft lips sigh?
For who do your blue eyes cry?
