Hazey Jane II
And what will happen in the morning when the world it gets so crowded that you can’t look out the
window in the morning?
And what will happen in the evening in the forest with the weasel with the teeth that bite so sharp when you’re not looking in the evening?
And all the friends that you once knew are left behind they kept you safe and so secure amongst the books and all the records of your lifetime?
What will happen
In the morning
When the world it gets so crowded that you can’t look out the window in the morning
Hey, take a little while to grow your brothers hair
And now, take a little while to make your sister fair
And now that the family is part of a chain
Take off your eyeshade start over again
Now take a little while to find your way in here
Now take a little while to make your story clear
Now that you’re lifting
Your feet from the ground
Weigh up your anchor
And never look ‘round
Let’s sing a song
For Hazey Jane
She’s back again in my mind
If songs were lines
In a conversation
The situation would be fine
