all my time i spent
the widow said as she bent
giving what meant everything
and all my company
are memories whispering
down by the forest
down by the forest

all the time in the world
is yours, she said as she went
with her thoughts on her dreams
i hardly knew you
yet i packed all i valued
and followed like
dust in the wind

can you give me sanctuary
when the babbling brook
runs dry?
can you give me understanding
when there's nothing left
to try?

what about your brothers
and all you had for lovers?
did they blow away like candles
in the night?
i saw you begging
on the day of the wedding
she don't wander by herself
where are
your sons and your daughters?

can you give me sanctuary
when the babbling brook
runs dry?
can you give me understanding
when there's nothing left
to try?

all my time i spent
the widow said as she bent
giving what meant everything
and all my company are
memories whispering
down by the forest
down by the forest
down by the forest
