LOVE AND MAPLE SYRUP Gordon Lightfoot 1971 Love and maple syrup go together Like the sticky winds of winter when they meet When lonely lovers come to rest Beneath the trees they do their best But still they can't be free. Looking for the world to be Anything but what they see Longing to be understood By the heart that shapes the wood. If you go into the forest, gaze up through the leaves And see the sky that's almost wild You can learn to understand What makes the forest greet the man Like a mother's only child. In the north when winter's claw Relaxes now to keep the laws of nature in control People come and stand in line To rob the forest of her wine. But they don't feel the cold. Looking for the world to be Anything but what they see Longing to be understood By the heart that shapes the wood. (bridge) Love and maple syrup shine like Embers warm, like thoughts divine They tell us it is spring Love and maple syrup stir The thoughts of people into words Of songs that they can sing. Love and maple syrup go together Like the sticky winds of winter when they meet When lonely lovers come to rest Beneath the trees they do their best But still they can't be free. Looking for the world to be Anything but what they see Longing to be understood By the heart that shapes the wood. Looking for the world to be Anything but what they see Longing to be understood By the heart that shapes the wood. (Transcribed by David Story - February 2013)
