Pangs Of Love - Bruce Cockburn

    Listen to the rain on this mountain town
    Listen to the night bird's lonesome cry
    listen to the scratch of pen on paper
    That's the sound of sleep denied.

    Hear the sleepers toss and turn
    Dreaming whatever they're dreaming of
    The wind that's clearing the heat from the air
    Can't clear my heart of these pangs of love.

    Pangs of love
    That's the price you pay
    When you give your love
    But don't give all the way
    Pangs of love
    Won't let me go --
    I came so far around the world
    To hear the night say
    I told you so.

    (Pakhara, April 9, 1987)
