EASTERN LIGHT

Where does the sun come from
Where does it go
Pretty mama
I think you must know
You come in the morning
You're gone at night
Pretty babe
I think you're the eastern light
What is this magic
you bring at night
child you leave
I feel so fine
There's nothing less
you could do for me
Babe you speak
like a summer tree

I'll wait for you
in the woods at dawn
watch you walk away
when the sun goes down
I ask you if
you want to spend the night
You say you wanna catch
The 8:30 flight
Listen to me baby
I want to marry you
No one, No one else
understands a thing I do
I'm hoping you
decide to stay
It's so hard
loving you this way

Stood on my doorstep
after you'd gone
Heart full of feather
and pieces of bone
Went to the river
hoping you'd come
Your eyes full of lightning
and your hair all undone
Oh, listen to me baby
I want to marry you
No one else
understands a thing I do
I'm hoping you
decide to stay
It's so hard
loving you this way
This way, This way
