Love Song To A Stranger (3:55) (Joan Baez)

How long since I've spent a whole

night in a twin bed with a stranger

His warm arms all around me

How long since I've gazed into

dark eyes that melted my soul down

to a place where it longed to be?

All of your history has little to do

with your face;

You're mainly a mystery with

violins filling in space.



You stood in the nude by the mirror

and picked out a rose

from the bouquet in our hotel

And laid down beside me again,

and I watched the rose

on the pillow as it fell.

I sank and I slept in a twilight

with only one care -

To know that when day broke and I woke

that you'd still be there.



The hours, for once,

they passed slowly, unendingly by

Like a sweet breeze on a field;

Your gentleness came down upon me

And I guess I thanked you

When you caused me to yield

We spoke not a sentence

And took not a footstep beyond

our two days together

which seemingly soon would be gone.



Don't tell me of love everlasting -

and other sad dreams -

I don't want to hear.

Just tell me of passionate strangers

who rescue each other

from a lifetime of cares.

And if love means forever,

expecting nothing returned,

Then I hope I'll be given

another whole lifetime to learn.



'cause I took from you

oh so many things

It makes me wonder how they could

belong to me,

And I gave you only my dark eyes which

melted your soul down to a place

where it longed to be -
