Are you still in control of the boat that you row Or do you still cling to me when its sinking I never condemned you, I only consoled you When candlelight made me a King For the wide-eyed and laughing Passed like a season Erasing a passion to sin For no one knew better than the tealeaves and the tarots That the wide-eyed and laughing Were just one step ahead of the wind And the hearts that you played on the porch swing for me Was a song that I'd heard in the past For I had an audience somewhere inside you That applauded whenever you laughed Gone is a word that I now rarely use Though sometime in the course of a day I go racing back like a man possessed By the wide-eyed and laughing daughters of some different age
