Are you still in control of the boat that you row, Or do you still cling to me, when it's sinking? I never condemned you, I only consoled you When candlelight made me a King. For the wide-eyed and laughing Passed like a season Erasing a passion to sin, For no-one knew better than the tealeaves and the tarots That the wide-eyed and laughing Were just one step ahead of the wind. And the hearts that you played on the porch swing for me Was a song that I'd heard in the past, For I had an audience somewhere inside you That applauded whenever you laughed. Gone is a word that I now rarely use Though sometime in the course of a day I go racing back like a man possessed By the wide-eyed and laughing daughters of some different age.
