A Thousand Pages Before

This song is by Bachdenkel and appears on the album Lemmings (1970).

They say I was found in your garden
Asleep in the rain by your door
In my hand was a note
Can't explain what I wrote
Or why the words that you read
Should be something I said
A thousand pages before

When I wanted to learn and you taught me
You told me to write and I wrote
Page after page
I poured out my rage
In each line and each verse
And each kiss and each curse
Can be read in the rhymes that I wrote

Now it's cold and I'm tired and I'm lonely
There's no sleep to be found like before
I go out in the night
Just to sit there and write
The words that you see
And I think there must be
A thousand pages or more

And I'm lost, lost like I'm blind
She's not the kind of girl who would guide you
You're trapped, and the key is your mind
That's when you find she's turned it forever

So I drank 'til the bottle was empty
And the pages all strewn on the floor
But the words still remain
As if engraved on my brain
Was each line and each verse
And each kiss and each curse
I wrote a thousand pages before
