Verse 1:
Spring was never waiting for us girl, it ran one step ahead
As we followed in the dance
Between the parted pages that were pressed in loves hot fevered iron
Like a strip-ed pair of pants

Mac Arthur Park is melting in the dark
All the sweet green icing flowing down
Someone left the cake out in the rain
I don't think that I can take it
Cause it took so long to bake it
I'll never have that recipe again,
Oh no!!

Verse 2:
I recall a yellow cotton dress foaming like a wave
On the ground around your knees
Birds like tender babies in your hands, old men playing checkers
By the trees


Verse 3:
There will be another song for me, and I will sing it
There will be another dream for me, someone will bring it
I will taste the wine while it is warm
And never let you catch me looking in the sun
And after all the loves of my life
After all the loves of my life
You'll still be the one

Verse 4:
I will take my life into my hands, and I will use it
I will win the worship in their eyes, and I will lose it
I will let my passions flow
Like rivers from the sky
But after all the loves of my life
After all the loves of my life
I'll still be alone, wondering why


Oh!!! Oh no!!!!
