lyrics

Won’t you tell me everything I’ve been wanting you to say?
I’d like to know what you’re thinking love, at the closing of the day.
And we could light a lantern in the porch to guide the way
Of the ramblers like us, who’ve been lonesome and afraid.

Oh we’re young, we’re tentative
With a world lying in our hands.
In want of words of wisdom
I hope perhaps you’ll understand.

I tried to keep my thoughts of you love, at my lowest points today
When they sent me marching with my orders, as they handed me my pay.
And a man may starve tomorrow and the debt is on my hands.
And I can but think “Oh had I but been born a stronger man”.

I’m young, I’ve been insensitive
To the world lying in our hands.
In want of words of wisdom
I hope perhaps you’ll understand.
Bereft of words of wisdom, darling might you understand?
