WEATHERFIELD
These City Walls

 

Today I would walk with you in the quiet place you are
By the rushing sea on a California shore

But these city walls stand so high
They blot out all I've seen
Of open land with open sky
And the ocean rolling green

 

Today a quiet wind reminded me of you
So I'll send a seeking song and hope it finds you soon
But these city walls stand so high
And in my heart they've grown
Till only a distant slot of sky
Reminds me of the freedom I have known

 

Today I would walk with you in the quiet place you are
By the rushing sea on a California shore
