Fountain Of Sorrow (Album Version) - Joan Baez (瓊·貝茲)

I was looking through some photographs

 

I found inside a drawer

 

I was taken by a photograph of you

 

There were one or two i know

That you would have liked a little more

 

But they didn't show your spirit quite as true

 

You were turning around to see

 

Who was behind you

 

And i took your childish laughter by surprise

 

And at the moment

That my camera happened to find you

 

There was just a trace of sorrow in your eyes

 

Now the things that i remember seem

So distant and so small

 

Though it hasn't really been that long a time

 

What i was seeing wasn't really happening at all

 

Although for a while our path did seem to climb

 

But when you see through love's illusions

 

There lies the danger

 

And your perfect lover just looks like a perfect fool

 

So you go running off in search of a perfect stranger

 

While the loneliness seems to spring from your life

 

Like a fountain from a pool

 

Fountain of sorrow fountain of light

 

You've known that hollow sound of

Your own steps in flight

 

You've had to hide sometimes

But now you're all right

 

And it's good to see your smiling face tonight

 

Now for you and me it may not be

That hard to reach our dreams

 

But that magic feeling never seems to last

 

And while the future's there for anyone to change

 

Still you know it's seems

 

It would be easier sometimes to change the past

 

I'm just one or two years

And a couple of changes behind you

 

In my lessons at love's pain and heartache school

 

Where if you feel too free

And you need something to remind you

 

There's this loneliness springing up from your life

 

Like a fountain from a pool

 

Fountain of sorrow fountain of light

 

You've known that hollow sound of your own steps in flight

 

You've had to hide sometimes but now you're all right

 

And it's good to see your smiling face tonight
