lyrics

From the dark side of the window
Stands a man of time and wear
Singing sweet songs to the willow
Oh but she don’t seem to care

He is often at that window
With a cool glass in his hand
Taking long pulls between verses
As he accompanies her dance

How can two fools fall in love
How can two fools have the chance
When one fool is a dancer
And one is playing with the band

From the dark side of the garden
Sways a willow tall and round
Making circles with her branches
To a ghostly singin sound
Between this lady long and rooted
And this moment of a man
Lies a love that’s leashed and languid
And a dance they’ll never have

How can two fools fall in love
How can two fools have the chance
When one fool is a dancer
And one is playing with the band
