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 longs 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 lay down beside me again and I watched the rose

On the pillow where 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

Because if love means forever, expecting nothing returned

Then I hope I'll be given another whole lifetime to learn

Because you gave to me oh so many things it makes me wonder

How they could belong to me

And I gave you only my dark eyes that melted your soul down

To a place where it longs to be

Джоан Баэз
