WHEN ALL IS SAID AND DONE
Shannon Lee © January 1999


I’M LOOKIN’ BACKWARDS, FORWARDS, SIDEWAYS UP AND DOWN

JUST TO SEE WHAT I CAN SEE

I’M SEARCHIN’ HIGH AND LOW FOR ANSWERS

TO QUESTIONS I CAN’T ASK

THIS TOPSY TURVY TOWN IS INSCRUTABLE TO ME

FRIENDS, FOES, FAMILY - PLEASE LET ME SEE

WHAT IS TRUTH? WHERE IS JOY? WHO HAS SECURITY?

NO MATTER WHAT LIFE BRINGS

IT’S PLAIN TO SEE


WHEN ALL IS SAID AND DONE, WHEN ALL IS SAID AND DONE

WHEN THE ROOF IS FIXED, AND THE KID’S ARE FED

WHEN THE DOG IS WALKED, AND YOUR “PEACE” IS SAID

WHEN THE OATH IS SWORN AND THE DEED IS DONE

WHEN THE BOOK IS READ, AND THE GAME IS WON

WHEN ALL IS SAID AND DONE - I LOVE YOU


I’M BURNING, CHURNING, TURNING, YEARNING
JUST TO SPEND SOME TIME WITH YOU
IT’S SILLY JUST TO KEEP THE DREAM ALIVE
BUT WHAT ELSE CAN I DO?

MY HEART’S BETRAYED ME FOR THE VERY LAST TIME
I’M STRONGER, BOLDER, BRIGHTER JUST WATCH ME FLY
HERE I GO, I’M ON MY WAY, THERE’S NO TURNING BACK
BUT WHO HAS POWER OVER ME? THE R-E-A-L-I-T-Y IS

WHEN ALL IS SAID AND DONE
WHEN ALL IS SAID AND DONE

WHEN THE NOTES ARE PLAYED AND YOU’VE HAD YOUR FUN
WHEN THE BRICKS ARE LAID, WHEN THE HORSE HAS RUN
WHEN THE BED IS MADE, AND THE LESSON LEARNED
WHEN THE SONG IS SUNG AND THE BRIDGE IS BURNED

WHEN ALL IS SAID AND DONE - I LOVE YOU
