    (Sandy Denny)
    He was a stranger to himself
    A spy in his own camp
    And his money was his health
    All thrown to the dust by his very own hand
    Yet his beauty lingered still
    Beyond the draining of the sand
    But greener was the other side of the hill
    Richer was the other man's land
    But we loved him, loved him just like brothers would
    We loved him, loved him like no others could

    And she loved him, loved him like a lover should
    Take good care of an aching heart
    You never can replace it
    You know you are the master of your heart
    You'll realise that when you think it fit
    Those orbs of blue are jading away
    No laughter from them dances
    Yet you're bound to remember this one day
    Hazards are risks and risks are chances
    You can run for cover, run for cover like a frightened hare
    Till it's all over, all over and there's no-one there
    'Cos you daren't discover, daren't discover that we really care
