Love Song To A Stranger (Album Version) - Joan Baez (瓊·貝茲)

Written by: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 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 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

You'd still be there


The hours for once they passed slowly astoundingly 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

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 which melted your soul down


To a place where it longs to be
