JOAN BAEZ – Turquoise Lyrics

Your smile – beams like sunlight – on a gull’s wing
And the leaves – dance and play – after you
Take my hand – and hold it – as you would a flower
Take care with my heart – oh darling – she’s made of glass

Your eyes – feel like silence – resting on me
And the birds – cease to sing – when you rise
Ride easy – your fairy stallion – you have mounted
Take care how you fly – my precious – you might fall down

In the pastel skies – the sunset – I have wandered
With my eyes and ears and heart – strained to the full
I know I tasted the essence – in the few days
Take care who you love – my precious – he might not know
