Sandy Denny - One Way Donkey Ride Şarkı Sözü

there you may stand ın your splendour and jewels
swaying me ın both directions.
one ıs the right one, the other for fools,
how do ı make my selection?
the city lies silent ın the warm morning light,
the sand ıs as golden as saffron.
oasis of love, sweet water of life,
god bless the poor ones who have none though they have tried.

someone ıs drowning down there ın the flood
but this river will dry by tomorrow.
ıs ıt ocean or stream, this love ın my blood,
bringer of joy or of sorrow?
the end of the journey must soon be ın sight,
birth ıs the start of the swansong.
oasis of love, sweet water of life,
god bless the poor ones who want some but are denied.

no one ıs given the map to their dreams,
all we can do ıs to trace ıt.
see where we go to,
know where weve been,
build up the courage to face ıt
while we fumble ın the darkness where once there was light
roaming the land of the ancients.
oasis of love, sweet water of life,
god bless the poor ones whose patience never died.

while we stumble ın blindness where once there was sight
searching for trees ın the forest.
oasis of love, sweet water of life,
god bless the poor ones, so helpless they have cried.
god bless the poor ones who have none though they have tried.
god bless the poor ones who want some but are denied.
god bless the poor ones whose patience never died.
god bless the poor ones on that one way donkey ride.
