What You Reap Is What You Sow

This song is by Ewert and The Two Dragons and appears on the album The Hills Behind The Hills (2009).

They say the youth is the time to sow
Don't they? Don't they?
Some say that one can't do it too slow
And mustn't sow to show, sow to show
I was told to work hard, so I tried
I didn't know how hard would be enough

Harvest came, and then I realised
Instead of work, instead of work
I'd watched the moon wax and wane
I foretold a better life,
I foretold a better life

What you reap is what you sow
I'm asked how I didn't know
What you reap is what you sow
I'm asked how I didn't know

Later on it can be seen
What a man has sown, what seeds
Anyone who peaks at my field
Can see what a mess there is

What you reap is what you sow
I'm asked how I didn't know
What you reap is what you sow
I'm asked how I didn't know

Surprisingly all there is, nothing but
Weeds running wild on my fields

What you reap is what you sow
I'm asked how I didn't know
What you reap is what you sow
I'm asked how I didn't know

What you reap is what you sow
I'm asked how I didn't know
What you reap is what you sow
I'm asked how I didn't know

I'm asked how I didn't know
By seas I have to sow my own
