      About "Tower Song"

      Lyrics for Townes Van Zandt - "Tower Song"

      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 fear has built a wall between
      Our lives and all what lovin' 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 some day

      You close your eyes and speak to me
      Of faith and love and destiny
      As distant as eternity,
      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

      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 tasted
      A mother's breast, a newborn child
      A poet's tear, and drunken smile
      Can't help thinkin' all the while
      Their meaning won't be wasted
