The Pearl (Remastered) Lyrics

The Pearl - Judee Sill

 

I've been lookin' for someone

Who sells truth by the pound

Then I saw the dealer and his friend

Arrive but their gifts looked grim

 

Now I'm tired of hanging on

Waitin' for a showdown

Don't y'see I gotta ride 'em out

Cuz the pearl's just around the bend

 

Beautiful pearl o when will you reappear

Mysteries unfurl and become so clear

When I feel you near

I found a way outside myself

To make my spirit climb

And I coulda shinnied on up

But my rope was made of wind

 

I appreciate the words

But I won't be there at showtime

Don't y'see I gotta ride them out

 

Cuz the pearl's just around the bend

 

Beautiful pearl

O when will you reappear

Mysteries unfurl and become so clear

When I feel you near

When my backyard weeds grew high

I hoped that they would hide me

But I felt that the pearl was near

Cuz I thought I saw it shine

I was lookin' all around

When I felt it there inside me

And I see a possibility

That its been there all the time
