Cold misty evening
I watched you walking up the path
up to the front door
your footsteps in the grass
We've been here before
you out there while I'm stuck in here
looking out from the bedroom
with a crack in the glass
So, Priscilla this is a warning
trying to tell us this is a war
No goodbyes and no time for mourning
Now we'll see what see what this love is for
I believe in springtime
I believe in dead leaves in the wind
and I know that endings
are the best place to begin
But when I watched you coming
and I saw you brush up against the ferns
All i could think of was
if they're wet will they ever burn?
So, Priscilla this is a warning
trying to tell us this is a war
No goodbyes and no time for mourning
Now we'll see what see what this love is for
What's it for?
What's it for?
What's it for?
And there in the blue moonlight
you stopped and turned toward the ocean
And you were so still standing
I wondered if you would ever tuned around
Cold misty evening
I watched you walking up the path
up to the front door
your footsteps in the grass
I could see you thinking
and I had a notion that wasn't good
but you put your boot on the first step
and I could hear the creak in the wood
So, Priscilla this is a warning
trying to tell us this is a war
No goodbyes and no time for mourning
Now we'll see what see what this love is for
What's it for?
What's it for?
What's it for?
So, Priscilla this is a warning
trying to tell us this is a war
No goodbyes and no time for mourning
Now we'll see what see what this love is for
So, Priscilla this is a warning
trying to tell this is a war
No goodbyes and no time for mourning
Now we'll see what see what this love is for

    General CommentThis song is about lovers that long to be with each other. He seems to long for her strongly. They have been together before...on and off. It's seems as though one of them is not free (you are out there while I'm stuck here). He hides his feelings but he observes her closely.

    He picks a fight when she comes to visit because he is unhappy with something...(cold misty evening). Perhaps not getting as much love and attention or jealousy (I wonder if you will ever turn around) . It looks like they had been on and off and they are always starting again.

    She is hot or fire (But when I watched you coming
    and I saw you brush up against the ferns
    All i could think was
    if they're wet will they ever burn?")


    He picks a fight to test her love...

    So, Priscilla this is a warning
    trying to tell us this is a war
    No goodbyes and no time for mourning
    Now we'll see what see what this love is for

    He wants to understand why they both met each other and fell for each other. How strong is that love. What is the purpose... "What this love is for".

    At the end she gets upset about the war or the warning and go away. He hears her leaving and knows she won't be back anytime soon. The longing for her starts again. He is always longing for her. "He believes in spring". Ending is the best place to begin".
