Seals & Crofts – Sweet Green Fields lyrics

(lyrics and music by James Seals, 1967
Released by The Knickerbockers on the album, Lloyd Thaxton Presents the Knickerbockers.
Also recorded 2/21/67 and released on Sundazed Record's cd, "The Knickerbockers."
From the S & C album get closer (1976)
Sampled on the 1997 rap hit by Busta Rhymes, "Put Your Hands Where My Eyes Can See."
Lookin' up the sleeve of confidence, I jump down from the fence.
Been a long time since I've felt this way, let the feeling stay.
Reaching for the arms of love, livin', dreamin', thinkin' of
The moment I slip on the glove, my fear is gone. The grain of hope has grown.

Starin' at the face of happiness, this time it answers yes.
In aging peace my doubts will rest away, let the feeling stay.
Looking through the eyes of truth, I see faith and love and youth.
And all else dries up like the dew, my fear is gone. The grain of hope has grown.
And I'll be running, laughing, playing in the sweet green fields of belonging to someone.

The distant feeling's gone, and I can make it from now on.
My world has something new. It's all because of you.
The sweet green fields growing in my life will never die.

Lookin' up the sleeve of confidence, I jump down from the fence.
Been a long time since I've felt this way, let the feeling stay.
Walking up the road of togetherness, this time I must confess
This day's the very best. My fear is gone. The grain of hope has grown.
And I'll be running, laughing, playing in the sweet green fields of belonging to someone.
Now I'll be running, laughing, playing in the sweet green fields of belonging to someone.
Well I'll be running, laughing, playing in the sweet green fields of belonging to someone.
