Jasmine

 

Night was slowly falling when I thought I heard your voice

Left you in the city when I heard I had a choice 

I tried, I know I only lied

I was resigned to my life, babe

 

Here within the darkness, where my actions are my own

I can smell the jasmine, I can see our sacred home

I fear, I may have left what's dear,

But I'll be here for a while, babe

 

Oh, my stars are wandering 

So far from me, I'm blind, you see

Take one look and pass me by

As days go by, you'll heal--I'll die

 

I suppose my roots may grow without

Feet set in stone 

Bones free to roam from doubt 

 

All I'm owed is all I owe myself 

Rivers of peace

Canyons of grace and wealth 

 

Oh, my stars are wandering 

So far from me, I'm blind, you see

Take one look and pass me by 

As days go by, you'll heal--I'll die
