farewell....

Oh all the money that in my whole life I did spend,
Be it mine right or wrongfully,
I let it slip gladly to the hands of my friends
To tie up the time most forcefully.
But the bottles are done,
We've spent each one
And the table's full and overflowed.
And the corner sign
Says it's closing time,
So I'll bid farewell and be down the road.

Oh ev'ry one that ever l've touched,
I did not do it harmfully.
And ev'ry one that ever I've hurt,
I did not do it knowin'ly.
But to remain as friends you need the time
To make amends and stay behind.
And since my feet are now fast
And point away from the past,
I'll bid farewell and be down the line.

Oh ev'ry foe that ever I faced,
The cause was there before we came.
And ev'ry cause that ever I fought,
I fought it full without regret or shame.
But the dark does die
As the curtain is drawn and somebody's eyes
Must meet the dawn.
And if I see the day
I'd only have to stay,
So I'll bid farewell in the night and be gone.

Oh, ev'ry thought that's strung a knot in my mind,
I might go insane if it couldn't be sprung.
But it's not to stand naked under unknowin' eyes,
It's for myself and my friends my stories are sung.
But the time ain't tall,
Yet on time you depend and no word is possessed
By no special friend.
And though the line is cut,
It ain't quite the end,
I'll just bid farewell till we meet again.


But if the arrow is straight
And the point is slick,
It can pierce through dust no matter how thick.
So I'll make my stand
And remain as I am
And bid farewell...

Vicki

But if the arrow is straight and the point is slick,
It can pierce through dust no matter how thick. dylan
