lyrics

on the green of the hill
we drink our fill of golden sunshine
till our brains intertwine
temper my lonely hours
and this drought of sunshine

when the soul is fled too high above our head
afraid will we gaze after its airy maze

but i am tiring, you are tiring
and we’re too young for these worries and this cryin’
and you shake me like salt over food
there’s too much and that’s too soon and it’s too good

when the soul is fled too high above our head
afraid will we gaze after it’s airy maze

too earthly you are for my sport
when we are handed to eagle’s claws when we are born
and the mother is wild over her infant child
our faces too were once heavenly and mild
but you bear me along
though the sights i scarce can bear
there’s only so much that we’ll ever learn to share

when the soul is fled too high above our head
afraid will we gaze after it’s airy maze
