Love Is Just A Four Letter Word - Joan Baez (瓊·貝茲)

Seems like only yesterday

I left my mind behind

Down in the Gypsy Cafe

With a friend of a friend of mine

She sat with a baby heavy on her knee

Yet spoke of life most free from slavery

 

With eyes that showed no trace of misery

 

A phrase in connection first with she I heard

That love is just a four-letter word

Outside a rambling store-front window

Cats meowed to the break of day

 

Me I kept my mouth shut

To you I had no words to say

My experience was limited and underfed

You were talking while I hid

To the one who was the father of your kid

You probably didn't think I did but I heard

You say that love is just a four-letter word

 

I said goodbye unnoticed

Pushed towards things in my own games

Drifting in and out of lifetimes

Unmentionable by name

Searching for my double looking for

Complete evaporation to the core

Though I tried and failed at finding any door

I must have thought that there was nothing more

Absurd than that love is just a four-letter word

TStrange it is to be beside you

Many years and tables turned

You'd probably not believe me

If I told you all I've learned

And it is very very weird indeed

Yo hear words like forever plead

Those ships run through my mind I cannot cheat

It's like looking in the teacher's face complete

I can say nothing to you but repeat what I heard

That love is just a four letter word
