Here I stand on the hill overlooking the land I was born in
It's the early morning
The rain is still falling
And coming from yesterday's storms
Once it was bright and the moon shone each night
But now it has gone with the streams of the troubles I've seen
Where have I been
What have I seen
What is exactly the matter with
One time, sometime or never
So thunder keep crashing
And lashing the wind through my hair
And blowing a hole in the place where my soul might have been
So I sit in my mill on top of the hill
The sails have stopped turning and time has stood still
Can somebody tell me the date
And what day it's been
Where have I been
What have I seen
what is exactly the matter with
One time, sometime or never
So all day alone with my head in my knees
And my malt wine to make me feel high
You went such a long time ago
Oh God I wish I could die
Once it was bright and the moon shone each night
But now it has gone with the streams of the troubles I've seen
Where have I been
What have I seen
What is exactly the matter with
One time, sometime or never
One time, sometime or never
