  • Sow the wind and reap the whirlwind
    Through the rain and through the shine
    Only something with a meaning
    Can stand the test of time

    I really shoulda told ya
    I really wanna hold ya
    You gotta know that you won't miss your water till your well runs dry

    Cast the spell and catch the spell bound
    Sing the song and bang the drum
    Feel the need and just believe
    The best is yet to come

    I really shoulda told ya
    I really wanna hold ya
    You gotta know that you won't miss your water till your well runs dry

    When the bombs began to fall
    I didn't do it for the roses
    As I was striding ten feet tall
    Well, that's another story, former glory

    The good that you do
    Will carry you through, yeah yeah
    I did it for you
    I didn't do it for the glory

    Cry like you've never cried before
    See my picture on your wall
    Laugh like you never laughed at all as
    All is meant to be
    And wonders never cease

    When the bombs began to fall
    I didn't do it for the roses
    As I was striding ten feet tall
    Well, that's another story, former glory

    The good that you do
    Will carry you through, yeah yeah
    I did it for you
    I didn't do it for the glory Lyrics licensed and provided by LyricFind
