Vashti Bunyan is an enigma in British folk music that has only been understood in the last ten years. Following explusion from art school in 1964 Andrew Loog Oldham, the Rolling Stones manager discovered her singing in London. Her music was delicate Judy Collins style folk music but Loog Oldham sought to shape her as a pop star. He got her to record a Rolling Stones song and released it on Decca and then as he formed Immediate he arranged for her to record many unreleased pop style songs. By 1968 this cynical attempt to make her a pop star left her dejected particularly as her heart was in folk music. She decided to give up her life and travel in a traditional caravan up to Scotland to join Donovan.

During that year she wrote a number of highly personal songs that documented her new experiences living close to the land in isolation. After encouragement from Derroll Adams she took her songs to Joe Boyd. Joe Boyd was the natural producer for her, already a legend by then producing The Incredible String Band, John and Beverly Martyn and Nick Drake. He recorded the album and bought in sympathetic musicians from Fairport Convention and Incredible String Band to assist on some songs.

The album was released in 1970 but with little support from the artist it didn't sell and languished in obscurity for thirty years. The artist lived a life of travel and isolation left alone by the music industry. Over the years it became a legendary album to many folk collectors with album prices rising to high figures. In the last couple of years Vashti has once again taken tentative steps back into some involvement in music notably performing with highly respected ambient electronic band Piano Magic.
Long out-of-print and a highly-prized collectible, Just Another Diamond Day was finally reissued on CD in the summer of 2000. In 2005 she returned with Lookaftering, a reference to her years "lookaftering" her family. The album appeared on Fat Cat's DiCristina imprint and featured artwork by Vashti's daughter.

Just another diamond day

Diamond Day

Just another diamond day
Just a blade of grass
Just another bale of hay
And the horses pass.

Just another field to plough
Just a grain of wheat
Just a sack of seed to sow
And the children eat.

Just another life to live
Just a word to say
Just another love to give
And a diamond day

Glow worms

Glow worms show the path we have to tread
Dreamers we should be asleep in bed
Moving slowly through the springtime air
Holding moments in the depth of care
Holding moments in the depth of care

Whisper fairy stories till they're real,
Wonder how the night can make us feel
Loving living more with love to stay
Long past sadness that was in our way
Long past sadness that was in our way

Dawntime mist begins reflecting light,
Waking sun will soon forget our night
Love me through the day and I'll with you go
Into summer and the next year's snow
Into summer and the next year's snow

Lily Pond

In a lily pond I lay
All upon a summer's day
Then I chased a dragonfly
All across an ancient sky
Falling with a thousand stars down the Milky Way to Mars
Back again in time for day
In a lily pond I lay

And the only thing he said to me
Was 'young lady I love thee'

Timothy Grub

Maurice Snail and Timothy Grub,
Swanney and Blue and Emily Grub
Decided one day to go into the wood
And build them a house and live there if they could
And they stayed there a while in the trees and the rain
Till one day two Blue Men said you're all insane
And to please not come here again

They had a green car called 'Happiness Runs'
Friday comes and Happiness runs
Out of petrol and everyone gets out to push
And suddenly see through a gap in the bush
A real caravan, just like the one in their dreams
The gypsy doesn't want it for nowadays it seems
His home stays in one place and gleams

He told them that he had a horse down the lane
Saturday morning they went back again
He showed them a shed that was built out of tin
He opened the door and they all peered within
And there lying on straw was a horse black as night
With a star on her forehead and eyes full of light
And they all fell in love at first sight

They thought and they thought about having Black Bess
Timothy planted some mustard and cress
They lived in a cupboard and made it their home
And lay there and dreamed of the days when they'd roam
Up and down all the hills of the North countryside
With the dogs eating buttercups on the wayside
And they'd wave all the cities 'goodbye'

Where I like to stand

The hound bays the sheep graze i'm counting the boats in the bay
As they float they seem to say-'i'm counting the waves, i'm counting the waves'
The men in the boats they wave to their wives and say
'I'm counting the hours, counting the hours, counting the hours in the day'

I'm counting the gulls that sit on the waves surrounding the boats in the bay
I'm counting the miles till we're there where the sun and the rain and the snow
Fall on the seeds and make them grow
Fall on the rocks and make them crack into pebbles and into sand
Which is where i like to stand

Swallow song

And there's a sunset brimming over the sky
And there's a swallow teaching it's young how to fly
Up on high
See how fast the summer passes by

And there's an oak leaf turning green into brown
And there's a pine so proud of her evergreen gown
Looking down
See how fast the winter comes around

And there's a rain cloud passing over our heads
And there's a cat on the doorstep waiting to be fed
Milk and bread
Day is done and now it's time for bed

Window over the bay

I wish i had a window over the bay
And a black horse grazing on the green all day
I wish i had a well to draw my water from
And a warm log fire for when the summer is gone

I wish i had a window over the bay
And a flock of white sheep to watch from where i lay
I wish i had a little boat bobbing on the deep
And a big wooden table all laid out for tea

I wish i had a window over the bay
And a dreamy eyed cow to fill my milking pail
I wish i had a cockerel to raise me at dawn
And a little bed to sleep in when the curtains are drawn

Rose Hip November

Rose hip November - autumn I'll remember
Gold landing at our door
Catch one leaf and fortune will surround you evermore

Pine tree very tall, waiting for snow to fall
Mist hangs very still
Caught by dawn in castle moats around the sleeping hill

Now a pipe is heard happy is the shepherd
Shepherdess and dog
Father of the pastureland and mother of the flock

Rosehip November, autumn I'll remember
Gold landing at our door
Catch one Leif and fortune will surround you
Evermore
Evermore
Evermore

Come wind come rain

Come wind come rain we're off again,
Our muddy boots plod down the lane
The snow has snowed now the grass has growed
And it's time that we were on the road.

Hey ho the wind and the rain
The passers by wave their arms and grin

Come wind come rain we're off again
Our muddy boots plod down the lane
The mare is shod the miles untrod
Between us and the 'land of god'..

We're on our way and everyday
Is another ten miles and an armful of hay
Hey ho the wind and the rain
Another ten miles and a bucket of grain.

Hebridean sun

Travelling towards a hebridean sun
To build a white tower in our heads begun

The grass knows, the hills know, we all know
Spring has come, the good fountain flows.

Each hoof fall brings us nearer the land
Of peat and seabirds and silver sand.

The grass knows, the hills know, we all know
Spring has come, the good fountain flows.

Rainbow River

The rainbow river is a laughing stream
Down in a valley by a mountain that is pine tree tall
The rainbow river has a small boy fishing with a worm
And a jam jar by the waterfall
Don't make a sound don't disturb the ground
The biggest fish you ever saw is around
And the rainbow river gives a rainbow fish
As one small boy goes running proudly to his mother's call

The stonebuilt farmhouse is a rough stone cottage
Hiding close against the hillside up a winding track
The stonebuilt farmhouse has a fair-haired farmer
Wearing wooden shoes and building up a new haystack
Run in the door stand on the stone floor
The oven opens- there's the biggest loaf you ever saw
And the stonebuilt farmhouse gives a good warm welcome
As he sits down in his own chair with a Windsor back

The magpie meadow is a glowing evening colour
Sun is setting quietly and the boy is tired
The magpie meadow has a sparrow hawk who hovers
Hanging on the wind preying eagle eyed
Sit by the lantern watch as the years turn
Slowly bringing truth for every child to learn
And the magpie meadow darkens gently blue now
As the family sit their faces lit by ember fire

Trawlerman's song

I love coming home from far across the sea
I pick my little wee wifey up
And set her on my knee
See how my eldest boy has grown
Whilst i've been away
See here's a boat i've whittled for thee,
Especially for thee
I've thought of you everyday

I love coming home from far across the sea
And taking up my walking cane
And passing through the trees.
I wander on the hillside,
The doggie at my heel,
The bracken waves a welcome to me
'Where have you been
We've missed you a great deal'

I love coming home from far across the sea
I pick my little wee wifey up
And set her on my knee

Jog Along Bess

Jog along Bess hop along May
Squeak along Blue it's a walk along day
It's a long road and weary are we
Bubble on kettle and make us all some tea

Once there was a gypsy man
Selling flowers from a baker's van
Bess she pulled him round the town
Pulled her wagon all old and brown
Till one day we took her away
Painted her wagon bright and gay
Now she finds she's travelling
North No more wandering back and forth

Once there was an Afghan hound
Loved by no one and pushed around
Tied up in a stable yard
Tangled and timid and howling hard
Till one day we took her away
Called her Magog shortened to May
She hurt a paw made it sore
Now she runs on three legs instead of four

There lived a dog in London Town
With one ear up and the other ear down
The neighbours said he mustn't bark
The only grass he knew was in Hyde Park
Till one day we took him away
Now Blue bounces through fields of hay
But he sits and squeals like a squeaky wheel
When the wheels are rolling that's how he feels

Little green wagon in a deep blue sky
Wheels like dandelions passing by
With a picture by Sam a painting by John
And a bonnie black hoss to lead you along
Lucky green wagon you were raggedy brown
Now there is red at the hem of your gown
We brought you a pumpkin brought you a mouse
We wished very hard and you gave us a house

Jog along Bess hop along May
Squeak along Blue it's a walk along day
It's a long road and weary are we
Bubble on kettle and make us all some tea

Iris's song for us

I climbed the peaks of glass with you
And walked a world of brass with you
And gladly left the glaring streets
To share a bed of grass with you

You made the elder burn for me
And cut the bird filled thorn for me
And through the ripening summer days
You bade the white road turn for me

Lock up the lark love
And pin back the sky
We need a space in which to work
And sing and die

I rode the dark green deep with you
And drove our dreams like sheep with you
And now my love please let me cross
Brown boundaries of sleep with you

Love song

I love your eyes when you look away
Thinking somewhere else of what ought to be
When they're suddenly blue for a moment of time
Then the colour goes when you look at me

I love your hands as a part of you
As they write a word just by staying still
When you talk they move, painting what you say
So i understand more than words can tell

I love your hair in the dark it's soft
In the light it moves, red and green are brown
All the time it takes for a night to pass
And a lifetime grows as the day comes down

I love you now as you don't love me
I can't let you know you're too far away
But i wonder now just what did you see
When you looked at me in that loveless way

I'd like to walk around in your mind

I'd like to walk around in your mind someday
I'd like to walk all over the things you say to me

I'd like to run and jump on your solitude
I'd like to rearrange your attitude to me

You say you just want peace and to never hurt anyone
You see the end before the beginning has ever begun

I would disturb your easy tranquillity
I'd turn away the sad impossibility of your smile

I'd sit there in the sun of the things i like about you
I'd sing my songs and find out just what they mean to you

But most of all i'd like you to be unaware
Then i'd just wander away, trailing palm leaves behind me
So you don't even know i've been there.

Winter is blue

Winter is blue
Living is gone
Some are just sleeping
In spring they'll go on
Our love is dead
Nothing but crying
Love will not find even
One more new morning

Why must i stay here
Rain comes i'm sitting here
Watching love moving
Away into yesterday

Winter is blue
Everything's leaving
Fires are now burning
And life has no reason
I am alone
Waiting for nothing
If my heart freezes
I won't feel the breaking

Why must i stay here
Rain comes i'm sitting here
Watching love moving
Away into yesterday

Iris's song for us (Version Two)

I climbed the peaks of glass with you
And walked a world of brass with you
And gladly left the glaring streets
To share a bed of grass with you

You made the elder burn for me
And cut the bird filled thorn for me
And through the ripening summer days
You bade the white road turn for me

Lock up the lark love
And pin back the sky
We need a space in which to work
And sing and die

I rode the dark green deep with you
And drove our dreams like sheep with you
And now my love please let me cross
Brown boundaries of sleep with you


Lookaftering

Lately

Never was much given to prayer
But lately I'm pleading with the air
To keep you safe from harm my dears

The only things that you should keep in rows
Are your perfect teeth - and the rest you know
Its own sweet way will always go

Add your footsteps to the wear
For a tiny dent in every stair
Will let them know that you've been there

Here Before

Once I had a child
He was wilder than moonlight
He could do it all
Like he'd been here before

Once I had a child
She was smiling like sunshine
She could see it all
Like she'd been here before

Then I had a child
Took his while like northern summer
And he knows it all
Like he's been here before

Wayward

Didn't want to be the one
The one who's left behind
While the other one goes out to life
And comes back home to find
Me sitting pretty happily
Surrounded by a house
With cups in all their saucers
And not a bit of dust

Days going by in clouds of flour and white washing
Life getting lost in a world without end

I wanted to be the one
With road dust on my boots
And a single silver ear-ring
And a suitcase full of notes
And a band of wayward children
With their fathers left behind
All in their castles in their air
And houses in their land

Lives getting lost in mending gaps in their fencing
All I ever wanted was a road without end

Hidden

Hidden in your every move
Are the words that you will never say
Stars and moons are not your style
I've known for a while this is not your way

I hear you

I do know you very well
And our time will tell if I read you right
It can be so very hard
Looking for a dark horse in the night

I see you

I do know you very well
And I will until you can prove me wrong
Maybe i'll find you are not
Anything like what i've thought all along

Don't think so

One day you'll say what you mean
And will I be seen for a cloud of dust
Now i've nothing left to say
And i'll find my way by your light of touch

I'm with you

Against The Sky

Whatever pulled the wind that night
It had it bring a tree down
Untidy lime tree holding tight
To the end of my last garden
One of five against the sky
An elegant surrender
It broke the wall and bent the gate
And warmed us through the winter

Whatever pulls the wind tonight
Will have the roof slates fly
But rows of chimney pots don't wave
Like trees against the sky
The hill behind the old house
I can trace it with my finger
Against the sky I see it still
And draw it down on paper

Whatever pulled me over here
You were the main contender
And with the trees against the sky
Another life's remembered
Some evening skies are yellow
And over my head they're blue
What happened to the green between
It happened to me
Too

Turning Backs

Indifference is the hardest blow
It is the wind and icy snow
That falls on green shoots as they grow
In winter when the spring's too slow

Indifference is the coldest hand
It is the wave that clears the sand
Of castles built by baby hands
Before the gulls come in to land

Indifference is the hardest ground
It is the stony silent sound
Of plainsong echoing unfound
Until the voices have left town

If I Were

If I were to go away
Would you follow me
To the ends of the earth
To show me what your love is worth
Or would you go and buy a car
Shrug your shoulders say there you are
She didn't love me anyway
If she had she would have stayed

If I were to go away
Would I always look
For your beautiful face
In every crowd, every place
Or would I go and buy a hat
Turn my shoulder say that is that
He didn't love me now it's clear
If he had he would be here

Same But Different

I'm in a boat
On the sea
And I see
You on the shore
So sure
Of yourself

You're in a boat
On the sea
And you see
Me on the shore
So sure
Of myself

We're in a boat
All at sea
And we see
We are the same
The same
But different

Brother

Isn't it strange
Back here again
The red brick house and all the trees
I climbed then

Nothing changed
Same as before
The only thing I see is you're
Not here now

Feet of Clay

Don't waste this dance on me my love
Step and glide the way you do
And let me watch the turns and move
My heart if not my feet with you.

Don't think about me dreaming here
I will see you fly away
While in my head you hold me dear
And whirl me off my feet of clay

Where was I when grace was given
Not to fall when turning round
I've no faith in earth or heaven
Not to move my standing ground

Don't waste your life on me my love
Live and breathe the way you do
No butterfly to be pinned down
And kept forever through and through.

But if your love should cross with mine
I will be here on your side
As long as you want me to be
I'll not be going far or wide

Running, walking, standing still,
Sitting, laughing - that I can do
And wishing, wishing
It could be me to dance with you

Some Things Just Stick In Your Mind

Some Things Just Stick In Your Mind

(Jagger /Richard)

Why does the sky turn grey every night
Sun rise again in time
Why do you think of the first love you had
Somethings just stick in your mind

Why does the rain fall down on the earth
Why do the clouds keep crying
Why do you sleep curled up like a child
Some things just stick in your mind

Why when the children grow up and leave
Still remember their nursery rhymes
Why must there be so much hate in their lives
Some things just stick in their minds

I Want To Be Alone

You know there are times when I don't need you
But you seem to think it means
Don't love you but I do
But sometimes I want to be alone
Somewhere on my own

I don't know why it is but I sometimes feel
That I have to get away yet I know I love you
But sometimes I want to be alone
Somewhere on my own

Don't make me stay to walk aimlessly
Hand in hand
Just today set me free
Let me be alone

Tomorrow I may feel that I can't go through
Even one more lonely hour
Without you, yet its true
That sometimes I have to be alone
Let me be alone

Train Song

Travelling north, travelling north to find you
Train wheels beating, the wind in my eyes
Don't even know what I'll find when I get to you
Call out your name love, don't be surprised

It's so many miles and so long since I've met you
Don't even know what I'll find when I get to you
But suddenly now, I know where I belong
It's many hundred miles but it won't be long

What will I do if there's someone with you
Maybe someone you've always known
How do I know I can come and give to you
Love with no warning and find you alone

It's so many miles and so long since I've met you
Don't even know what I'll find when I get to you
But suddenly now, I know where I belong
It's many hundred miles and it won't be long

Coldest Night of the Year

(Mann/Weill)

Baby baby it's late and you'd better go,
It's after three
Honey please have a heart, just look at that snow,
Take pity on me.
I can hear that north wind blowing,
and the fire is oh so warm
Well I know you should be going,
but how can I send you out in that storm

Baby its cold out there, and it's getting colder
Baby it's cold out there, getting colder
Matter of fact better cuddle up here
It's the coldest night of the year

Baby baby I know if you wanted to,
You'd brave the snow
But I haven't been well I might catch the flu
Or a cold in my nose
Lets snuggle close together
While the whole world turns to ice
Just the victims of the weather
Sending you home now just wouldn't be nice

Baby its cold out there, and it's getting colder
Baby it's cold out there, getting colder
Matter of fact better cuddle up here
It's the coldest night of the year
Ok, why not...

Girl's Song In Winter

There was a man when I was young
He lived a year with me
But the year was up and that song was sung
And his wish was to be free
His wish was to be free
I was in love when I was young
And I've never been free again
That's a promised fruit when you've first begun
That ripens into pain

I had a child when I was young
The last gift that man gave
I wish that he could hold his son
And the snow in the air lie on my grave
The snow lie on my grave

If In Winter (100 Lovers)

If in winter he should change and leave me
I'd let him go and learn to do without him
Oh I'd have a hundred lovers
And my heart would not be broken
And all the lies he's spoken
I'd whisper to the others

Oh it's winter now and he has changed and left me
I let him go and now I am without him
I don't want a hundred lovers
And my heart it is so broken
And all that lies he's spoken
I whisper to myself

Wishwanderer

You ask me where I live
Don't you know I live here now
But where is my one real home
This minute with you now
Home is where I stayed last night
Tomorrow's anywhere
If you let me stay with you tonight
Tomorrow's home will be here

Home has been so many roads
That I walk down in my sleeping
Here with you I'm home at last
But it's not home for my keeping
You won't miss me when I'm gone
This isn't my place
And my loves are few and don't belong
To any one lover's face

So don't ask me where I'll go
If you do I will lie to you
But I'll tell you of the place that is never my home
Where I've lived all my life
Where I sing
A wishwanderer's song
A wishwanderer's song
A wishwanderer's song

Don't Believe

You say that you'll always love me
That you'll never leave me blue
Don't you know that that's all fallacy
Don't you know it's not true

You may want the love they talk about
But it isn't like they say
You will find that come tomorrow
You won't feel this way

When you say that you're in love with me
Do you really know what you mean
Or are you saying it because you've heard of it
Or because of something you've seen

Oh don't believe that love brings happiness
Gone tomorrow here today
Love involves so much unhappiness
Don't believe what they say

Pink Sugar Elephants

I saw seventeen pink sugar elephants
Sitting under a chestnut tree
I said good morning pink sugar elephants
But they wouldn’t speak to me

Each had two eyes but they couldn’t see me there
Each had four legs but they couldn’t go anywhere
And so we just sat
That early autumn morning
Sun not yet risen and magic everywhere

I walked up to one pink sugar elephant
Asked why wouldn’t he speak to me
But he was a factory-made pink sugar elephant
Given to children for treats after tea

He had two eyes but he couldn’t see me there
He had four legs but he couldn’t go anywhere
And so we just sat
That early autumn morning
Sun not yet risen and magic everywhere

I won't say

(On limited edition only)

I won’t say come with me everywhere I go
I won’t say where are you please I’ve got to know
You’ve got your life and I’ve got mine
I’ve got no right to call you mine
When I know you can’t give your life to me

I won’t say please love me every single day
I won’t try to stop your freedom in any way
I’ve got my life and You’ve got yours
I didn’t realise this beforen ow I know
You can’t give your life to me

And you can’t say you will love me forever
Say you will leave me never
If I don’t know what tomorrow will bring
I can’t ask you for everything

I won’t say come with me everywhere I go
I won’t say come with me please I’ve got to know
You’ve got your life and I’ve got mine
I’ve got no right to call you mine
When I know you can’t give your life to me

Autumn Leaves

In the morning when I walk along
And it's been raining all night
It seems the rain is all the tears that I cried last night

When I walk along through autumn leaves
That must have fallen last night
It seems the leaves are all the tears that I cried at night

If he doesn't come back soon
The streets will never be dry
If he doesn't come back- the road-sweeper
Will never clear away my tears

And I know I just won't sleep tonight
I'll watch the rain and hear the wind
Blowing all my tears down to the street

Leave Me

When you said you would leave me
I thought that I would die
I thought I couldn't live anymore
If you weren't here by my side
But now go, and leave me
I don't care anymore
I don't care if I never see you no more

I'll always think of you
And of the love we knew
But I don't care anymore

When you said you would leave me
I didn't know what to do
I couldn't face the thought
Of living my life without you
But now go, and leave me
I don't care anymore
I don't care if I never see you no more

I'll always think of you
And of the love we knew
But I don't care any more
I don't care anymore
I don't care anymore

How Do I Know

How do I know that those mountains aren't cardboard
How do I know that the world is round
Why should I know just because you've told me
There's molten rock underneath my ground

How do I know there's a god in the sky
Looking down and hearing me
Why should you say I can't love any man
Have his children and still be free

Go on voting, striking and fighting
Go on searching, hiding and laughing

I can't change you I can't even try
But let me live like I think I can
Then when it's time for me to say goodbye
I'll have lived just a part of man

Go on voting, striking and fighting
Go on searching, hiding and laughing

I can't change you I can't even try
But let me live like I think I can
Then when it's time for me to simply die
I'll have lived just a part of man

Find My Heart Again

Ever since you said goodbye
I haven't known what to do
'Cause I haven't wanted to try
To find myself someone new
'Cause I just want to be with you
How can I give myself to somebody else yet
So I'll just stay alone
Until I get over you and the love we knew
And I find my heart again

I know it wouldn't be fair
To love someone new
'Cause I'd only want you to be there
And make believe he was you
'Cause I just want to be with you
How can I give myself to somebody else yet
So I'll just stay alone
Until I get over you and the love we knew
And I find my heart again

Go Before Dawn

Go before the dawn starts a breaking
And my eyes show the sun how much I cried
Go before my arms start their aching
To have you once again right by my side

The more you stay the more you remind me
My love for you was never meant to be
Let me leave these memories behind me
So I can let my loneliness go free

Thought I'd never want to be apart from you
But all I ever got was a broken heart from you

Oh go on your way I'll forget you
Don't lie to me through one more hurting day
I'll believe I never even met you
I know we'll both be happier that way

I Don't Know What Love Is

I don't know what love is, I can't say
What it is that makes me feel this way
But when I look at you it's then I know
That I could follow you wherever you go

Oh I don't know what love is but it seems
That every night you creep into my dreams
Then comes bright new morning and in my heart
I know it's one day closer to when we will part

But then you come
And then I know
That I won't ever want you to go

Oh I don't know what love is, I never will
But when you're gone from me I know I'll still
Want you to be with me and wonder why
There never was a love for you and I

Love You Now

I don't say I'll love you forever baby
I don't say I'll love you forever
But I know that I love you now

Dunno what tomorrow will bring baby
Dunno what tomorrow will bring
But I hope it can be like now

When you're near me
I want it to stay that way
But if a new dawn breaks
Please understand baby

I can't say I'll love you forever
Though I want to love you forever
I can only say that I love you now

I Know

Don't tell me you're going away
I know
And don't say what you're going to say
I know

Don't expect me to cry
Don't even say goodbye
And don't say life's like that you know
I know

And don't tell me I'm just a kid
I know
And how you loved the things we did
I know

Don't say that it's a shame
And that life's just a game
Just pack your case
And turn your face
And go

For I am not the same when you're not with me
Take away the bank and I will flow

And don't tell me that flowers must die
I know
And that the cup runs dry sometimes
I know

But I have drunk my fill
And quite fulfilled my will
And now there's nothing left to spill
Or show

Oh darling I am not the same without you
You just light the fuse and I will blow

All you have to do my love
Is go

Someday

I love you, you love me
But somehow we're not happy
So it seems if we don't part
We'll stay in love unhappy

But if I leave you and you leave me
We'll start to want each other
And we'll think back to the love we had
And we'll think of it as happy

So it will go on,
Til' the day we realize
That love needn't always mean happiness

So think of all the time to come
Other things can make us happy
And with no illusions our love will live
And someday, someday, someday, someday we'll be happy
