Paroles officielles de la chanson "Farmer's Son"

I didn't know you, I never knew you
Now I'm never gonna see you again
An acquaintance all my childhood years
I could never call you a friend
I was afraid that I might become you
I was afraid you might appear
As a weight upon my chest at night
And a whisper in my ear
Oh, the watershed I built
And wept enough that I could fill it
So the ground beneath my feet would yield
Enough that I could heal it
I'm gonna get it back, gonna get better
Gonna get it fixed, gonna burn that letter
I don't know what's coming but I'll take it
Whatever now
For I was born to another vocation
I was born in another era
I wasn't born that I should live my life
Beneath your failure and fear
Every night the storm grew closer
Every day the fire drew near
When they'd meet upon this acre
And I prayed it'd up and disappear
Oh, the watershed I built
And wept enough that I could fill it
So the ground beneath my feet would yield
Enough that I could heal it
I'm gonna get it back, gonna get better
Gonna get it fixed, gonna burn that letter
I don't know what's coming but I'll take it
Whatever now
You didn't know it, you didn't see me
As you went about your work
I was hiding in the pantry
I was practicing the shirk
By the time my shoulders straightened up
And my hands were strong enough
You couldn't lift an arm against her
You were too ill for that kind of stuff
Oh, the watershed I built
And wept enough that I could fill it
So the ground beneath my feet would yield
Enough that I could heal it
Women don't see it when they're with the wrong fella
Women don't see it 'cos you know they don't wanna
Women don't see it when they're with the wrong fella
Women don't see it 'cos you know they don't wanna
I could see it coming but I know
It doesn't matter now
