TOWER SONG (Van Zandt) Townes Van Zandt - 1971 So close and yet so far away And all the things I'd hoped to say Will have to go unsaid today Perhaps until tomorrow Your fears have built a wall between Our lives and all what loving means Will have to go unfelt it seems And that leaves only sorrow You built your tower strong and tall Can't you see, it's got to fall someday You close your eyes and speak to me Of faith and love and destiny As distant as eternity From truth and understanding The wind blows cold outside your door It whispers words I've tried before But you don't hear me anymore Your pride's just too demanding You built your tower strong and tall Can't you see, it's got to fall someday The end is coming soon it's plain A warm bed just ain't worth the pain And I will go and you'll remain With the bitterness we've tasted A mother's breast, a newborn child A poet's tear and drunken smile I can't help feelin' all the while Their meaning won't be wasted You built your tower strong and tall Can't you see, it's got to fall someday
