Love Song To A Stranger (Part 2) (Live) (Live) - Joan Baez (瓊·貝茲)

They brought me a beautiful basket of fruit

 

And two finger bowls of glass

 

The couch is gold with a floral design

 

And the wine is Germany's best

 

And the wine is Germany's best

 

My thoughts drift into the frozen night

 

Frankfurt is covered with snow

 

And numbly they ride on an icy wind

 

To places they're longing to go

 

To places they're longing to go

 

I remember the tall dark Irish rose

 

Who held me in my limousine

 

And slept with me under a burgundy quilt

 

With sheets of silk in between

 

Well anyway that's how it seemed

 

I thought I wanted to marry him

 

His face was sculpted by God

 

His words were gentle and ever so true

 

And soft as the Irish fog

 

And lost in the Irish fog

 

I remember the boy from the monastery

 

Who wanted to be a monk

 

But he brought flowers and wine to my room

 

And we both got happily drunk

 

And we both got perfectly drunk

 

He laughed like the chimes of a silver bell

 

His eyes were alexandrite blue

 

He danced the tai chi with the grace of a deer

 

And I wanted to marry him too

 

Yes I wanted to marry him too

 

There was that son of a dog from the Tennessee hills

 

Kept telling me I was still young

 

He spoke in pure southern and smoothed out the lines

Round my eyes saying I was the one

 

Forever that I'd be the one

 

He drank and he cussed and he wrote his own songs

He was very much on the go

 

We followed each other for over a year

 

I couldn't have married him though

 

So we just lived in sin on the road

 

There was that black eyed beauty from Boston town

 

Two days were never too long

 

He stood by the mirror and picked out a rose

 

But I already wrote him a song

 

Yes I already wrote him a song

 

So here I sit with my basket of fruit

 

And two finger bowls of glass

 

I finished my bottle of Germany's best

 

And concluded my thoughts on the past

 

That love is a pain in the a**
