Lyrics

(Source: Universal Mother)

John, I love you,
I'm ever so fond of you.
Will you wait for me
'Til I am heavenly?
Oh, there's much work to do,
But I love you.
Oh, you're tender,
Your name's a whisper.
I let tears fall like rain,
Apple-sized they were,
All over her.
And through all of those times
When you could have died,
This is what you find.
There's life outside your mother' s garden.
There's life beyond your wildest dreams.
There hasn't been any explosion.
We're not spinning like Dorothy.
If you look now, then youll see why.
Don't be afraid to cry.
This time, don't let yourself fly,
Child.
Pick up those dancing shoes.
Kick off those wedding blues.
These are the ways you can choose.
Child, you're tender,
Your name's a whisper.
There's life outside your mother's garden.
There's life beyond your wildest dreams.
There hasn't been any explosion.
We're not spinning like Dorothy.
And if you look now, then you'll see why.
Don't be afraid to cry,
This time.
Don't let yourself fly,
Child.
Pick up those dancing shoes.
Kick off those wedding blues.
These are the ways
You can choose.
Child, I love you,
I'm ever so fond of you.
