Judee Sill – The Pearl lyrics
I've been lookin for someone
Who sells truth by the pound
The I saw the dealer and his friend
Arrive, but their gifts looked grim.
Now I'm tired of hanging on,
Waitin' for a showdown
Don't y'see I gotta ride 'em out
Cuz the pearls' just around the bend
Beautiful pearl, o when will you reappear?
Mysterious unfurl and become so clear,
When I feel you near...
I found a way outside myself
To make my spirit climb,
And I culda shinnied on up
But my rope was made of wind
I appreciate the words,
But I won't be there at showtime
Don't y'see I gotta ride them out
Cuz the pearl's just around the bend
Beautiful pearl, o when will you reappear?
Mysterious unfurl and become so clear,
When I feel you near...
When my backyard weeds grew high,
I hoped that they would hide me,
But I felt that the pearl was near
Cuz I thought I saw it shine,
I was lookin' all around
When I felt it there inside me
And I see a possibility
That its been there all the time...
