Wasteland: Lyrics

the hills are blue just like I’m feeling

pretty fish in the river but I can’t see them

why did you love me - i’m sure that i don’t know

 

i feel the heat of the summer’s night

just like I felt it then in the cabin’s light

we drank so deep a water cold as ice

 

and in that final hour the answer may be found                                  

falling from the golden heights of summer’s crown                                             

the glacial streams careening, rejoining in one cry

of all that’s come and gone its love                

that’s passed you by

 

it should have been a warm rain on fertile ground

should have been laughter and drinks all around

how such good fortune could make someone so cruel

 

a single candle’s flame - the fire of believing

or was it carelessness or was I dreaming

to think a simple act of trust could make me such a fool

 

and in that final hour the answer may be found

emptied from your pockets onto the ground

I won't be there to met you or make you feel alive

of all that's come and gone its love

that's passed you by

 

passed you by

it passed you by

 

you took the best years - there’s a difference you know

between a woman’s life and a stone you throw

one in a million stars in the sky tonight

 

and in that final hour the answer may be found                                  

falling from the golden heights of summer’s crown                                             

the glacial streams careening, rejoining in one cry

of all that’s come and gone its love                

that’s passed you by

 

passed you by

it's passed you by
