The Singer
by Dogwood

Album: Out in the Open

He met a woman in the street
She leaned against an open door
And sang through her half-parted lips
A quiet song
She was a study in desire
And her friendship was for hire
And she asks Him as He passed by
"To whom do you belong?"

"I am not lonely, I am only loved"
She asked Him
"How much do you have to pay?"
"Not a thing, you troubled woman
I simply own love everything"

"And tell me, where did you learn
That song you were singing
When I met you a while ago?"
Then her propositions
Turned into confession
She said, "From the first man
To whom I was sold"

"Now how long have you known the song?"
She said, "Some twenty years
And I remember he sang it so tender
He said it was of love
And you know he made me a promise
That someday while selling my soul
Instead of leaving a fee for my love
Someone would take me home"

"Now tell me, have you seen that lover?"
She said, "No I'm still alone"
Then pity filled His eyes for her and He said
"There's something you need to know"

"You have learned the song of the hater
And the darkness is filled
With those he has fooled
You need to learn the true song of love
I know it, if you'll listen, I'll sing it to you"

La, la-la-la-la, la, la, la...
La, la-la-la-la, la, la, la...

And then He touched her on the shoulder
And said, "Just ahead of you
Is all of the joy for which you have waited
If you'll learn the tune
And then He left her in the street
And as He walked away
He heard someone ask her, "Do you sell love?"
She said, "No, I simply owe love everything"

La, la, la, la, la, la...
La, la, la, la, la, la...
La, la, la, la, la, la...
La, la, la, la, la, la...
