Dan Fogelberg – Comes And Goes lyrics

The woman's like the night
She comes and goes
She breaks my heart each day
And never knows,
And the time I spend
In sorrow
Will match the time I live
And the time that't left is
All I have to give.

The woman's like an ivy
On a pole
She wraps her twisted
Love around my soul
There will come a
Sudden winter
When she seeks the
Warmth of day
And there'll come a time
When she will come to stay.

The woman's like the tide
She comes and goes
She knows the things that
I can just suppose.
And the time I spend in
Will match the time
That she laughs
And the songs I sing
Cannot explain but half.
