Idlewild

When you’re down and can’t see a way
That everything could be good again
Idlewild will be there for you
To take you up and leave you there

Idlewild, Idlewild
Where the flowers grow and the children play
And it stays summer all year long
And the stars and the moon are clear to be seen
To be seen…

I nearly lost my guitar one day
A broken string and a broken neck
The children came and they fixed it up
They asked for nothing but a tune to play

Idlewild, Idlewild
Where the flowers grow and the children play
And it stays summer all year long
And the stars and the moon are clear to be seen
To be seen…

My love had died long and sharp ago
My longing for a new love was cradled
Idlewild had a lover fit to be mine
And gave it to me Idlewild
