Love Song To A Stranger (Baez Joan)

A A7 1. How long since I've spent a whole night D In a twin bed with a stranger A E His warm arms all around me? A A7 How long since I've gazed in the dark eyes D That melted my soul down A E To a place where it longs to be? C#m All of your history D Has little to do with your face Bm You're mainly a mystery D With violins filling in space A E Hmmm-hmmm 2. You stood in the nude by the mirror And picked out a rose From the bouquet in our hotel And lay down beside me again And I watched the rose On the pillow as it fell I sank and I slept in a twilight With only one care To know that when day broke and I awoke That you'd still be there You'd still be there 3. The hours for once they passed slowly Unendingly by Like a sweet breeze on a field Your gentleness came down upon me And I guess I thanked you When you caused me to yield We spoke not a sentence Took not a footstep beyond Our two days together which seemingly Soon would be gone Soon would be gone 4. Don't tell me of love everlasting And other sad dreams I don't want to hear Just tell me of passionate strangers Who rescue each other From a lifetime of cares Because if love means forever Expecting nothing returned Then I hope I'll be given another Whole lifetime to learn Hmmm-hmmm 5. Because you gave to me oh so many things It makes me wonder How they could belong to me And I gave you only my dark eyes Which melted your soul down To the place where it longs to be.
