Oh I'll wait until spring til she comes as she said
or I'll reckon the words in my head
or I'll wait until fall, all the leaves they are dead
sweet reckoning so soon will come
sweet reckoning also will come

Take away -
my love
Take away -

The lad daily went down to the port of his town
where the great ships came barging in
his voice was so soft all his words they were lost
but I think he was seeking his love
I think he was seeking his love

Take away -
My love
Take away -

Spin the wheel, it turns black - all the saints turn their backs
on us sinners stuck so far behind them
but nothing has cost, so nothing is lost
nothing's creeping up beside their beds
nothing troubles their sweet sleepy heads

Take away -
My love
Take away -

The Speakers are cattails alone on the flats some
miles and miles between them
their words are stones denting the ground
when I walk through I fear we are wed
when I stalk through the lands of the dead.

Take away
my love
take away

She was born, she was raised, it's time she was engaged
like the lullabies her mother told her
there is summer and fall, a soul, seasons, us all
what I do not believe I must refrain - from
what I do not believe I must refrain.
