willy lyrics – joni mitchell

willy is my child, he is my father
i would be his lady all my life
he says he’d love to live with me
but for an ancient injury
that has not healed
he said i feel once again
like i gave my heart too soon
he stood there looking through the lace
at the face on the conquered moon
and counting all the cars up the hill
and the stars on my window sill
there are still more reasons why
i love him

willy is my joy, he is my sorrow
now he wants to run away and hide
he says our love cannot be real
he cannot hear the chapel’s pealing silver bells
but you know its hard to tell
when your in the spell if its wrong or if its real
but you’re bound to lose
if you let the blues get you scared too feel
and i feel like i’m just being born
like a shiny light breaking in a storm
there are some many reasons why i love him
