QUICKSILVER DAYDREAMS OF MARIA (Van Zandt) Townes Van Zandt - 1968 Well, the diamond fades quickly when matched to the face of Maria All the harps they sound empty when she lifts her lips to the sky the brown of her skin makes her hair seem a soft golden rainfall that spills from the mountains to the bottomless depths of her eyes Well, she stands all around me her hands slowly sifting the sunshine all the laughter that linger down deep 'neath her smilin' is free Well, it spins and it twirls like a hummingbird lost in the morning and caresses the south wind and silently sails to the sea Ah, the sculpter stands stricken and the artist he throws away his brushes when her image comes dancin' the sun she turns sullen with shame And the birds they go silent the wind stops his sad mournful singing when the trees of the forest start gently to whisper'in her name So as softly she wanders I'll desperately follow her footsteps and I'll chase after shadows that offer a trace of her sight Ah, they promise eternally that she lays hidden within them but I find they've decieved me and sadly I bid them goodbye So the serpent slides softly away with these moments of laughter and the the old washy woman has finish her cleanin' and gone but the bamboo hang heavy in the bondage of quicksilver daydreams and a lonely child longingly looks for a place to belong
