Leslie

     
 

Leslie, I got it now
It all comes easy, once you show me how
One thing mystifies
I know you love me, but I don't know why

Come around some evening neath the darkened sky
And conjure clouds from out my eye
Lay around all mornin in a quilted bed
And brush the tangles from a tousled head

Leslie, I got it now
It all comes easy, once you show me how
But one thing mystifies
I know you love me, but I don't know why

Come trail a finger in a river's flow
Come help me wonder where the soul will go
Why the old dog's gentle with the kitten's play
Maybe he's too comfortable to move away

Leslie, I got it now
It all comes easy, once you show me how
One thing mystifies
I know you love me, but I don't know why

Look across the river to the lights of town
That's my house there, the third one down
That's my name written on the door
That's my life as it was before

Leslie, I got it now
It all comes easy, once you show me how
One thing mystifies
I know you love me, but I don't know why
I know you love me, but I don't know why
