Testo Love Is A Four Letter Word – Joan Baez

Testo della canzone Love Is A Four Letter Word di Joan Baez
Album: Unknown
Seems like only yesterday I left my mind behind
Down in a gypsy cafe with a friend of a friend of mine
Who sat with baby heavy on her knee
yet spoke of life most free from slavery
With eyes that showed no trace of misery
The phrase made connection- hurt was she
I heard that love was just a four letter word
Outside a rattling store front window
A cat meowed at the break of day
Me, I kept my mouth shut too, I had no words to say
My experience was limited and underfed
You were talking while I read
To the one that was the father of your kid
You probably didn’t think I did
But I heard you say that love is just a four letter word
I said goodbye unoticed
Pused forth into my own games
Drifting in and out of lifetimes
I mentioned to go by name
Searching for my double
Looking for complete evaporation to the floor
So I tried and failed to finding any door
I must have thought that there was something more
Absurd and that love is just a four letter word
So I never knew what you meant when you were
Speaking to your man
I could only think in terms of me
And now I understand
After waking enough times to think I see
The holy kiss that is supposed to last eternity
Blow up in smoke it’s destiny
Falls on strangers
Travels free
Yes now I know that traps are only set by me
And I do not really need to be
Assured that love is just a four letter word
