When I came down for the first hour
All of my problems had got a new form
You came to me clutching a flower
Talking of peace and keeping me warm

If you can believe in me
I will come for you
Instead of deceiving me
I want you, want you

When I came down for the next hour
All of my problems had got a new form
You walked away clutching your flower
Talking of peace and leaving me warm

If you can believe in me
I will come for you
Instead of deceiving me
I want you, want you

When I came down for the last hour
All of my problems had got a new form
She walked away clutching a flower
Talking of peace and leaving me warm

    General CommentFor anyone who doesn't know, this is a rare studio outtake from August 1969 (Original lineup). A snippet containing the first verse can be found on YouTube.

    IMO this song is WAY better than Evil Woman, and it would have fit the first album much better. I think putting Evil Woman / Wicked World on the original album instead of this was a huge mistake.
