Reason or Rhyme Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
Why must you shed such tender tears
In the evening of your years
No other love could stem the tide
Of the loneliness I hide
Open your heart and let me live
Verse 2
All the promises I could give
The sun and moon and all the stars
They bow down to you whenever you pass
In a world of fading sadness
An emerald ring, a photograph
Verse 3
That look in your eyes the brush of your cheek
These are the moments in life that I seek
No reason or rhyme, no presence of mind
Just a dance to the music of time
Verse 4
Why must you shed such tender tears
In the evening of your years
No other love could stem the tide
Of the loneliness I hide
Inside out, upside down
Verse 5
Obscured by clouds, or underground
The sun and moon and all the stars
They bow down to you whenever you pass
Wherever you are, whenever you speak
These are the moments in my life that I seek
Verse 6
No reason or rhyme, by chance or design
Just a dance to the music of time
Verse 7
Open your heart and let me live
All the promises I could give
The sun and moon and all the stars
They bow down to you whenever you pass
Verse 8
No reason or rhyme, by chance or design
Just a dance to the music of time
