Just got home from Illinois lock the front door oh boy!
Got to sit down take a rest on the porch.
Imagination sets in pretty soon I'm singin'
Doo doo doo Lookin' out my back door.
Sitting in the morning sun
I'll be sitting when the evening comes
Watching the ships roll in
And I watch 'em roll away again
Sitting on the dock of the bay
Watching the tide roll away
I'm just sitting on the dock of the bay
I left my home in Georgia
Headed for the 'Frisco bay
'Cause I had nothin to live for
And look like nothing's gonna come my way
So I'm just...
the rusty wire that holds the cork
that keeps the anger in
and suddenly it's day again
the sun is in the east
even though the day is done
two suns in the sunset
could be the human race is run
A time of war, a time of peace
A time of love, a time of hate
A time you may embrace
A time to refrain from embracing
To everything - turn, turn, turn
There is a season - turn, turn, turn
And a time for every purpose under heaven
Time, time, time
See what's become of me
While I looked around
For my possibilities
I was so hard to please
Leaves are brown
And the sky
Is a hazy shade of winter
Do not go gentle into that good night.
Oh, cause without you things go hazy.
I watched you sleepin' quietly in my bed
every normal man must be tempted, at times,
to spit on his hands, hoist the black flag,
and begin slitting throats.
Purple haze all in my brain
Lately things just don't seem the same
Actin' funny, but I don't know why
'Scuse me while I kiss the sky
Oh, the trees grow higher than the mountain
In the land of free love and goodbye
The rivers ever growin' the fish is flowin'
And the love lives in the sky
And I'm looking to the sky to save me
Looking for a sign of life
Looking for something to help me burn out bright
I'm looking for complication
Looking cause I'm tired of lying
Make my way back home when I learn to fly
And I cried out your name because I loved the sound it made
and because I couldn't wait to see your face.
And nothing ever was the same.
And the stars say, "Look into my eyes."
And I wanted you so bad tonight.
