lyrics

I wrote a song of love
I wasn't really sure
I wasn't in-the-know
I didn't know the score

I played it when we met
And how could it be true?
It felt like all the words
Were always meant for you

But a sail is a rag
When the wind doesn't blow
And a seed like a stone
Without water to grow

They were words from my heart
And I felt they were true
But they didn't make sense
Till I sang them for you

And had it been my wish
The feeling to describe
I doubt that on that night
I could have even tried

But if life is like a stage
And I must play my part
Then it was by some grace
I knew the words by heart

As a sail is a rag
When the wind doesn't blow
And a seed like a stone
Without water to grow

They were words from my heart
And I felt they were true
But they didn't make sense
Till I sang them for you

And please don't think me false
And sentimental, too
To say before we'd met
I wrote them all for you
