​Comes and Goes

This song is by Dan Fogelberg and appears on the album Captured Angel (1975) and on the album Promises (1998).

The woman's like the night
She comes and goes
She breaks my heart each day
And never knows,
And the time I spend in sorrow
Will match the time I live
And the time that's left is
All I have to give.

The woman's like an ivy on a pole
She wraps her twisted love around my soul
There will come a sudden winter
When she'll seek the warmth of day
And there'll come a time when she will come to stay.

The woman's like the tide
She comes and goes
She knows the things that I can just suppose.
And the time I spend in sorrow
Will match the time that she laughs
And the songs I sing cannot explain but half.
