Before You Lay Down Rough and Thorny

This song is by Hoelderlin and appears on the album Rare Birds (1977).

I think we're alone now
The others have gone
I would like to tell you
That you turn me on

And before you lay down
To the sweetness of your sleep
I would like to tell you how I feel

How long the time appears
How strange my body feels
How dark the shadows are
How strange my wishes are
Now strange my ideals are
How I feel with my back to the wall

I can't find the right words
I'm feelin' not sure
I would like to tell you
That I still love you

And before you lay down
To the sweetness of your sleep
I would like to tell you what I feel

How long the time appears
How strange my body feels
How dark the shadows are
How strange my wishes are
Now strange my ideals are
How I feel with my back to the wall
