The Byrds – Kathleen's Song lyrics

Written by Roger McGuinn and Jacques Levy

When I awake you will be gone
Shady tomorrow
I want to go, where will you be?
So I'll stay home letting my hair grow long
And I will be walking in dew

A fire burns, summer is gone
Winter is sorrow
And time don't mean nothing to me
When only the owls listen to hear my song
And I will be walking in dew
And I will be waiting for you

Some people say love goes away
Not mine

A rose's red for your cheeks
I will borrow
And fine old lace for you to see
A sash of blue tells me your love is strong
Each day my life's starting anew
And I will be waiting for you
