Improvised jazz session with the John Stevens Dance Orchestra.
On the banks of the river,
Where the willow hangs down
On the wild washing waters,
With that low mourning sound.
Down in the hollow
Where the water runs cold,
It was there I first listened
To the lies that you told.
You know, you know
Very soon, very soon, very soon
Let the rain come down
And then very soon, very soon
When the rain comes
No more, no more
No more pain, no more pain
For you and me
I wish, I wish I could remember.
I wish, that I may remember your name.
Oh the sweetening, all the motels.
The cheap nights, sweet rites,
I saw you, yesterday,
Walking down my line.
I says: I know you - just get away,
Your name is Father Time.
(Call me, make sure I'm home.)
I did not hear that call last night;
I didn't hear that call you made at me.
Everytime you go away, I think you've gone away to stay,
And I sit down,
And I commit myself to the deepest despair.
Everytime you move around, I think about moving
- Running away, making running repairs.
Call me ugly, call me crazy, call me mad:
You don't know just what I might call you.
Tell me a story - tell it up!
Tell it up, tell up your name.
Tell it up, tell it up - tell up your name.
No difference here;
I feel no difference here inside.
No difference here,
Feel no difference here inside.
(So cool, what a cool time,
It's so cool, what a cool time.
That's what you're having, I'm having one too.)
It's a cool cool time - running up the river,
It's a cool cool time, for running down the stream.
It's a cool cool time, for cutting up the profits,
It's a cool cool time, for a cool cool dream.
(You know the cure,
For a broken heart?
You know the cure..)
If I come a little strong, tell me when I'm wrong.
Guide me, tell me what to do.
Come a little fast, please help this love to last,
Pity me and take me home with you.
