Put my stake into the ground
Made my claim this time around
And in the selfsame circumstance I'd do the same again
Hold on out for the one I love, for the one I know I'm of
I never would be swayed

It was here before we noticed it
It'll be here when we're gone
And if I push you away, well let me be the first to say
That oh I've seen your light, it's in the harbour
Come on pull me all the faster
Back to the selfsame day

Beauty comes in slow release
I awaken to you piece by piece
I have no need for innocence or grief
Put my hand into your hand
And all the words I understand
They fall away like endless days upon the shore
They fall away like endless days upon the shore

We were here before we noticed it
We'll be here if it's gone
And if I led you astray, well let me be the one to say
That oh, I've seen your light out in the harbour
Come on pull us all the faster
Into the selfsame day

And I put my stake into the ground
In a state of grace this time around
And in the selfsame circumstance I do the same again
I would do the same again
I would do the same again

The sound would be significantly improved by studying Streisand. Her diction is impeccable. Beth keeps you puzzled with her accent.  South central Maine?  Too long vacationing in Nova Scotia?  “CROATOAN?”  A mystery.

To quote Sherlock Holmes ( the modern one) I am not an Addict. I am a user.

Right. And I'm a goner - as in PSD. 
beth has always put together great lyrics.
It is unhealthy to smoke. But it can be fun with the right people. Shouldn't we talk about songs here, and not about problems/lifestyle/health?

Poster child for the damages to your primary instrument due to smoking. Same story as Joni Mitchell. Killed their money-maker. Sad...

Interesting info. Thanks. I'm listening closer, now, straining to pick it out, but can't hear that typical smoker's throatiness. 

She has such a unique voice, huh. I'm a fan.

Kinda incoherent lyrics.

Two thumbs up from the Middletown jury.
