Song Description

Moving, fragile and intimate ballad of heartbreak heightened by beautiful saxophone played by Howard Jacobs

Story Behind the Song

Lost love.

Lyrics

Love, you play a dangerous game
to come so close and then to shy away
Close enough for me to blame
but never close enough to stay

And love, you are a wanton thing
You want to take more than you bring
But I am wise, too wise to play
Too wise to be all that I say

Oh, Magnolia blossom sweet
You're what I crave, you're what I need
But you know and everybody knows
How sweetness comes and sweetness goes

Love, your light so pure and clear
It shines on me, it knows I'm here
I try to hide, I shy away
You come so close, but you never stay

So sweet, so sure, so tenderly
You lay your gentle hands on me
My skin like feathers, asking why
this bird is grounded, cannot fly

Away, magnolia blossom bold
You're what I need - to have, to hold
But you know and everybody knows
How sweetness comes and sweetness goes

And oh, magnolia blossom brave
Your flower so brief, a single day
I dream of stars, so bold and bright
that bloom forever, day and night

But you know and everybody knows
How sweetness comes but not how sweetness goes
