    A SONG FOR DAVID
    (Words and Music by Joan Baez)

    In my heart I will wait
    by the stony gate
    and the little one
    in my arms will sleep.
    Every rising of the moon
    makes the years grow late
    and the love in our hearts will keep.
    There are friends I will make
    and bonds I will break
    as the seasons roll by
    and we build our own sky.
    In my heart I will wait
    by the stony gate
    and the little one
    in my arms will sleep.

    And the stars in your sky
    are the stars in mine
    and both prisoners
    of this life are we.
    Through the same troubled waters
    we carry our time,
    you and the convicts and me.
    There's a good thing to know
    on the outside or in,
    to answer not where
    but just who I am.
    Because the stars in your sky
    are the stars in mine
    and both prisoners
    of this life are we.

    And the hills that you know
    will remain for you
    and the little willow green
    will stand firm.
    The flowers that we planted
    through the seasons past
    will all bloom
    on the day you return.
    To a baby at play
    all a mother can say,
    he'll return on the wind
    to our hearts, and till then
    I will sit and I'll wait
    by the stony gate
    and the little one
    'neath the trees will dance.
