turquoise lyrics – joan baez

(originally by donovan)

your smile – beams like sunlight – on a gull’s wing
and the leaves – dance and play – after you
take my hand – and hold it – as you would a flower
take care with my heart – oh darling – she’s made of gl*ss

your eyes – feel like silence – resting on me
and the birds – cease to sing – when you rise
ride easy – your fairy stallion – you have mounted
take care how you fly – my precious – you might fall down

in the pastel skies – the sunset – i have wandered
with my eyes and ears and heart – strained to the full
i know i tasted the essence – in the few days
take care who you love – my precious – he might not know
