I've known you for many years but truly for just one
and there's a way a low moon hangs before the sun does come
that's the way I often feel when you come stumbling home
to break my heart and let me down again.

There's a boy down south somewhere who's working on his dream
and climbing round the crags of youth just looking for a seam
I guess a man must lose himself to know where he has been
this one's going to come away clean.

There is yet another who is drifting towards his end
who thinks he lost the best years of his life to someone else's whim
but lovers come and go just like a sultry summer wind
and grieving for your past is no way to live.

My friend and I are prisoners of our own grand designs
and grasp for some salvation that will pardon both our minds
but beauty is much easier to seek than it is to find
I think that we'll be looking a long, long time.

Girl you've done so many things that still remain unseen
and even Love must sometimes bow at the altar of her queen
for you have mastered both the art of love and loving me
and it's about time I opened my eyes to see.

Now that I've used up my words I hope I used them well
I saved the last verse for myself in case you couldn't tell
and in the best traditions of those bards who've come and gone
I offer you the music of my song.

I give you the mercy of my song.
