Song Description

Young, unfettered love, realized!

Lyrics

The Field Behind The House

I kissed her on the commons in the field behind the house
Hoping that she would teach me what love was all about
I was young and kind of clumsy, I was shaking with delight
My hands and eyes were roaming for the best part of the night
She held out just one finger and she gently touched my lips
And her eyes were wild and hungry as she pulled me by the hips

Chorus

I want you to remember where the sun is in the sky
I want you to remember the birds are flying by
I want you to remember how the dew lays on the grass
And I want you to remember our future and our past
I want to be remembered as you tumble through the years
I want to be a part of you as you call upon your tears
And if this night should pass away and sleep deep in your mind
I want you to be tender and I want you to be kind

We were going to Vancouver, we were riding on our thumb
We knew where we were heading we knew where we were from
We slept outside of Jasper underneath the railway bridge
We felt the evening hunger and the mist rise off the ridge
And just beside the coastline where the totems held the sea
I gave myself to her and she gave herself to me

Chorus

It's been some time since I've seen her I can't remember when
I held her close beside me like I did a way back then
I can still smell her hair see the glory in her eyes
And wonder why I let her go and then I realize
I have never ever let her go she lingers in my head
And she will always haunt me till the day that I am dead
And I can hear the robins singing on an April morning fair
And everytime the dew falls I know that she'll be there
