Oh, sweet lady, runnin' like a stream
You don't look back because you know your hands are clean
You make believe the past was just a dream
You make believe the past was just a dream

Turn around, turn around
And I will sing for you a song
I don't know where you been
But you've been gone too long

Oh, Elisa, you must begin again
And all the roads that you have walked are comin' to an end
I was your lover but I thought I was your friend
I loved you but I thought I was your friend

Turn around, turn around
And I will sing for you a song
I don't know where you been
But you've been gone too long

Oh, sweet lady, stand beside the sea
Maybe you will find a little time to think of me
Won't you please remember what I tried so hard to be
Yeah, remember what I tried so hard to be

So turn around, turn around
And I will sing for you a song
And I don't know where you been
But you've been gone too long
