It’s been a quiet fading/ of winter into spring/I’ve been gazing into treetops but I haven’t heard a thing/I found the songbird/ and asked her why she wept/ so silently in far gray hills I hadn’t traveled yet/ it’s been a quiet spring
It’s been a long time coming/ I’ve danced in feigned realities/ my starry and my hopeful eyes have filled with questioning/ it’s been a pale goodbye/ I’ve counted tears but not too much/ as every petal of my wildflowers have drooped and turned to dust/ I saw it coming
Of time I’ve seen plenty/ of love I’ve seen none/ some people long for lovers/ but I just want to be loved/ but I’ve been staring into mirrors/ instead of into lakes/wandering round in circles and still stuck with this heartache/it’s been a long time coming for a little love
It’s been hard to sing/ I really haven’t had the time/busy wandering after love instead of crafting clever rhymes/but that’s the thing/I’d blindly trade you rocks for gold/and I’d never think it foolish to have or know what your heart knows/ that’s the thing/ Chorus
