lyrics

Dear lady
I tucked you into me
You were an isle of heaven
As I sailed the devil's sea

Oh lady
You tried to sow a need
You gave a taste of sweetness
As I waded bitter fields

There was nothing I could ask for
That you wouldn't try to give
And I'm sorry that I could not
Want to need your kiss

There was nothing I could want
That you wouldn't try to be
And I'm sorry that I could not
Give you all of me

Dear lady
Oh precious company
You answered every echo
When I fell among the trees

But lady
The twain shall never meet
I didn't mean to crush your heart
As I stood back on my feet

There was nothing I could ask for
That you wouldn't try to give
And I'm sorry that I could not
Want to need your kiss

There was nothing I could want
That you wouldn't try to be
And I'm sorry that I could not
Give you all of me

Dear lady
A flower doesn't fly
You dreamed our vivid plans
While I passed a faded time

Oh lady
It's not a cushion lie
You deserve a better man
Than one searching for his rhyme

There was nothing I could ask for
That you wouldn't try to give
And I'm sorry that I could not
Want to need your kiss

There was nothing I could want
That you wouldn't try to be
And I'm sorry that I could not
Give you all of me
