Jefferson Airplane – Martha lyrics

Paul Kantner)

Martha she listens for the ticking of my footsteps, patiently
She sifts the hairy air that's worn and woodswept,
She does as she pleases,
She listens for me;

Martha she calls to me from a feather in the meadow,

You can dance and sing and walk with me;
"Fly to me:"
And dreams will fade and shadows grow in weed;

She does as she pleases,

Her heels rise for me;
As she murmurs to her feet,
My love, she talks to winking windows,
Caught for me;
She separates in laughter to my side,
She does as she pleases,
Her heels rise for me;

And it's waiting there for me;

Martha, she keeps her heart in a broken lock,
What a great thing to be free;
She weeds apart through a token lock;

She weeps time, starts unspoken;
But when the gate swings,
There she'll be,
There she'll be

In green sun... On blue Earth,
Under warm running showers
