lesley

lesley, i long for you
i wish that i knew
you when you were young
i feel you alone in the city
i feel you with your true love singing
a little bit out of tune
a little bit lovely, too

oh, oh, oh i want you to know
how i was wrong about everything
oh, oh, oh i want you to know
that i am beside you now
digging in the dirt for a golden ring

lesley, will you forgive me
on some golden summer evening
walking where you feel free
i sought you in the story i told
i sought you in the man i hold
he was humming that sweet old tune
that keeps me from hearing you

chorus

lesley, will you be happy
finding layers of longing
beneath his tender skin
i want you to write with your blood
i want you to know that you’re loved
and to save a little piece
of your unsolved mystery

oh, oh, oh i want you to know lesley
and the story she’s telling me
oh, oh, oh i want you to know lesley
lesley, let me sing your name
oh, oh, oh i want you to know
lesley
