Out of the Wilderness

As I was driving through the outskirts

Dylan’s Hurricane playing in my ears

The sun dances hot between golden leaves

The speed of autumn steals my fears

Matthew Arnold treat you gently

Edward Elgar dress away your pain

Your children love you for your pastry

A liar’s loss is now your gain

Our meeting was a true enigma

The wheel of fortune stopped right there

I’ll kiss your mouth my own dear Libra

Your sparkling love is sweet and fair

Matthew Arnold treat you gently

Edward Elgar dress away your pain

Your children love you for your pastry

A liar’s loss is now your gain

Dance with me in fields of fancy

Let’s hold hands to stand against the storm

This life is a delicate wild pansy

Our quickening love has just been born

Matthew Arnold treat you gently

Edward Elgar dress away your pain

Your children love you for your pastry

A liar’s loss is now your gain

Come to me in darkening dreams

By day we’ll both be well once more

And the night will sew silken seams

To bind us closer on a distant shore

Matthew Arnold treat you gently

Edward Elgar dress away your pain

Your children love you for your pastry

A liar’s loss is now your gain
