Lyrics

Verse 1: Spring was never waiting for us girl, it ran one step ahead As we followed in the dance Between the parted pages that were pressed in loves hot fevered iron Like a strip-ed pair of pants Chorus: Mac Arthur Park is melting in the dark All the sweet green icing flowing down Someone left the cake out in the rain I don`t think that I can take it Cause it took so long to bake it I`ll never have that recipe again, Oh no !!

Verse 2: I recall a yellow cotton dress foaming like a wave On the ground around your knees Birds like tender babies in your hands, old men playing checkers By the trees Chorus. Verse 3: There will be another song for me, and I will sing it There will be another dream for me, someone will bring it I will taste the wine while it is warm And never let you catch me looking in the sun And after all the loves of my life After all the loves of my life You`ll still be the one Verse 4: I will take my life into my hands, and I will use it I will win the worship in their eyes, and I will lose it I will let my passions flow Like rivers from the sky But after all the loves of my life After all the loves of my life I`ll still be alone, wondering why Chorus. Oh !!! Oh no !!!!
