You've been so kind and generous
I don't know how you keep on giving
For your kindness I'm in debt to you
For your selflessness, my admiration
And for everything you've done

You know I'm bound...
I'm bound to thank you for it

You've been so kind and generous
I don't know how you keep on giving
For your kindness I'm in debt to you
And I never could have come this far without you
So for everything you've done

You know I'm bound...
I'm bound to thank you for it

I want to thank you
For so many gifts
You gave with love and tenderness
I want to thank you

I want to thank you
For your generosity
The love and the honesty
That you gave me

I want to thank you
Show my gratitude
My love and my respect for you
I want to thank you

I want to...

Thank you
Thank you
Thank you
Thank you
Thank you
Thank you

I haven't been following Natalie Merchant's progression since her first solo album. Her voice is still lovely in this song, unlike in "Motherland". Just my $0.02.
 
Huh.  I have that vinyl, but I don't listen to it.  I just look at the cover.

Your right I’ll go 10
Very nice song I’ll go 9

Predictably, this song isn't doing well in the ratings, despite it being one of my favorite Natalie Merchant songs.
Every time this song comes on, I think, "Oh, I can sit through it this time." And every time it turns out I'm wrong, and I switch stations. As I'm about to do. I don't hate it as much as some, but I definitely don't like it. And by the way, come on--Ophelia? Hasn't that character pretty much been tapped for all the allegory she could possibly provide?
Definatly a women with a voice and talent. Unfortunatly, from a personal standpoint, I just have not liked the direction she has gone since leaving 10,000 maniacs. The chemistry between the musicians in 10,000 and Natalie was amazing and made for many memorable and enjoyable songs. I will say that out of her solo catalog this is one of the more enjoyable tracks that I have heard.
I like this song and used to play the album over and over, but my other half hates it - so I don't listen to it anymore - Thanks for reminding me how good it is RP! :)
her songs drive me up the wall .. always have and always will ..
please, I'd like to hear often this song.
