Too Many Years (Jorma Kaukonen)

well, I opened the door And I found I was looking at danger Well, it's been so many years But we're hiding our faces like strangers She says that she's got to go But there ain't no way I'm letting her walk While there's something to say Too many years Just to watch our hearts die in this way She's feeling a time For a seasonal change and she's yearning To shake the trees of our love in the streets Where the leaves are for burning All things on this earth Were made for the dying One look in my soul says There just ain't no use trying Too many years Just to watch our hearts die in this way In an unwritten time I thought that life was for sharing When I'm living together Was simply a matter of caring But things did not Work out like I planned And alien nation has Left me here damned Too many years Just to watch our hearts die and Too many years Just to watch our hearts die and Well, it's too many years Just to watch our hearts die in this way
