lyrics

It’s not as if we understand
Just what caprice took hold of the hand
And if I knew I’d share with you
How God withdrew his hand too soon
Must be the woodsmoke that fills our eyes
Allotment bonfires in autumn skies
As the sun sinks low early afternoon
Then God withdrew his hand too soon

Nature must take its course, of course
And life’s too short for much remorse
That noise still rattling through the room
Is God withdrawing his hand too soon
He’s with me now, he’s with me still
He walks beside me, he always will
His voice so quiet dispels the gloom
Though God withdrew his hand too soon

And if a child should come to you
Down in the garden he waits for you
The wounds of love he shows to you
Though God withdrew his hand too soon
It’s not as if we understand
Just what caprice took hold of the hand
And if I knew I’d share with you
How God withdrew his hand too soon
