Vashti Bunyan – Turning Backs lyrics

Indifference is the hardest blow
It is the wind and icy snow
But falls on green shoots as they grow
And win to will the springs to slow

Indifference is the coldest hand
It is the wave that clears the sand
Of castles built by baby hands
Before the gulls come into land

Indifference is the hardest ground
It is the stony silent sound
Of plainsong echoing unfound
Until their voices have left town
