Well I’m looking for the corner That spring is just around
And bringing home the rainbow’s end That has not yet been found
And washing in the water That flows off a ducks back
And holding out the hands of time that cannot be turned back
I’ll hang out with the cows That are never coming home
And keep off all the roads That always lead to Rome
Lived high off the hog or was it hand to mouth
I’m going through the motions while everything goes south

That’s just my silhouette has not grown up yet
Just treads water
Shoots the breeze
Charms the birds
From the morning trees

Never found a brick wall To knock my head against
And no-one is as black as everybody paints
I do not have a number that ever will come up
No brightly colored ribbons tied around my cup
I’m happy with the trees I do not need to see the wood
Missed a lot of targets but it’s the test of time I stood
Am not that kind of worker who always blames his tools
Play up to the gallery cant play by the rules

Don’t show me the ropes because I’ll tie myself in knots
I joined a one man army and joined up all the dots
Started on the warpath to fight for a lost cause
But I turned tail and scarpered to even up the scores
Took the road out to Damascus wearing only dead men’s shoes
Pulled up all the olive branches no one could refuse
So when I put down roots with you we’ll both be safe and sound
Because I’ve found that corner that spring was just around
