Back Around

Lyrics: Donna Jean Godchaux, Jeff Mattson
Music: Donna Jean Godchaux, Jeff Mattson

A new song introduced by the Donna Jean Godchaux Band in 2009.

Don't wanna look back at the times we never had
So hear me when I tell you that my heart is glad
Well, I remember the visions in the old days
The end of how it all shakes out is so far away

If I could do it again or the truth be ever told
I'd wrap you up in silver, and I'd shine you up in gold
And I'd paint you in the colors of a light beam
'Cause you are bright as a lamp in the dark, forever in my dreams

Whenever the crow flies, and the willow weeps
Whenever the wolf cries out and dragons sleep
Whenever the sun comes up or it's laying down
You know I'm always found loving you
When it all comes back around
When it all comes back around

Well it all comes back around to this
We were sweethearts, we loved and we played
And you taught me how to take the hits
You made me unafraid
And we laid in the bed we made
We suffered and we paid
But you made me strong
Baby, I'm right where I belong

I found me a graveled road that I could travel on
Living in what could have been can keep up a heart of stone
Yes, the fantasy of some other day is so long gone
Sweet memories in my mind they keep me moving on

Whenever a cold wind blows and the crickets croon
Whenever a wick burns low or a blossom blooms
Whenever a trumpet blows or a sparrow bleeps
Darling it's so sweet

Whenever the crow flies, and the willow weeps
Whenever the wolf cries out and dragons sleep
Whenever the sun comes up or it's laying down
I'm found back around
I'm found back around
I'm found back around
Loving you
