The Silky Veils Of Ardor - Joni Mitchell

    I am a poor wayfaring stranger
    Traveling through all these highs and lows
    I heard there was no sickness
    And no toil or danger
    Just mercy and plenty
    Where peaceful waters flow
    Where peaceful waters flow

    Come all you fair and tender school girls
    Be careful now--when you court young men
    They are like the stars
    On a summer morning
    They sparkle up the night
    And they're gone again
    Daybreak--gone again

    If I'd only seen through the silky veils of ardor
    What a killing crime this love can be
    I would have locked up my heart
    In a golden sheath of armor
    And kept its crazy beating
    Under strictest secrecy
    High security

    I wish I had the wings
    Of Noah's pretty little white dove
    So I could fly this raging river
    To reach the one I love
    But I have no wings
    And the water is so wide
    We'll have to row a little harder
    It's just in dreams we fly
    In my dreams we fly!
