To Climb

(Michael Joy)

To Climb

Sweetheart while you’re waiting
Would you like to hang a while with me
I can be funny and I pay my own way
Forgive my interfering if you want to be alone
You strike me as a dancer as the dancing starts to fade
I’m just a man goin’ to die like other people do
Got no pretensions ‘bout where I’m goin’ to go
I know true love is the highest apple on the tree
But sometimes it’s fun just to climb
Sweetheart if you’re crying
Over some enchanted vagabond
I’ll do my very best to divert your pain
Don’t know what I’m after but a conquest I’m not up to
There’s a breeze ‘cross the desert with the promise of rain
I’m just a man goin’ fade like all the flowers do
Want to play through the evening ‘til the great mother calls
I know true love is the star so far above the trees
But sometimes it’s fun just to climb.
