- LyricsI was following the, I was following the, I was following the, I was following the
I was following the, I was following the, I was following the, I was following the
I was following the pack, all swallowed in their coats
With scarves of red tied 'round their throats
To keep their little heads from falling in the snow, and I turned 'round and there you go
- LyricsThe door slammed loud and rose up a cloud of dust on us
Footsteps follow, down through the hollow sound, torn up.
And you will go to Mykonos
With a vision of a gentle coast
And a sun to maybe dissipate
Come down from the mountain, you have been gone too long
The spring is upon us, follow my only song
Settle down with me by the fire of my yearning
You should come back home, back on your own now
- LyricsWanderers this morning came by
Where did they go
Graceful in the morning light
To banner fair
To follow you softly
- LyricsLie down with me, my dear.
Under stormy night.
My brother, where do you intend to go tonight?
