The Last Wall of the Castle

Album: After Bathing at Baxter's (1967)
  • Gone swirling tears came, she went today
    Down fallen years go by
    No place in learning how to cry
    I went astray
    Understanding is a virtue, hard to come by
    You can teach me how to love
    If you'll only try, so please
    Don't give up so soon

    Sorry that I hurt her, I went astray
    Hurt her mind and broke her heart
    But there's no stopping once you start
    She went away
    Understanding is a virtue, hard to come by
    You can teach me how to love
    If you'll only try, so please
    Don't give up so soon

    I never knew you the way you are
    The blinded bird is not sincere
    His flying's done from only fear
    He's lost his star
    Understanding is a virtue, hard to come by
    You can teach me how to love
    If you'll only try, so please
    Don't give up so soon
