Song With No Meaning

Album: Early Morning Onwards (1969)

  • Passing time in the sun
    To think of things, lost and done
    You wonder why she left so soon
    No word or reason why
    All feelings born can only die

    Lazy days passing by
    With memories you just can't hide
    The song flows on you can't pursue
    Your words don't mean a thing
    The mood's too hard for you to sing

    Moving on with a sigh
    A silhouette against the sky
    The seconds they dripped right on by
    And slowly filled the day
    And feelings born can only fade away Writer/s: LES HOLROYD
