Love Maple Syrup Lyrics by Gordon Lightfoot


Gordon Lightfoot Lyrics

Love Maple Syrup Lyrics
Love and maple syrup goes together

Like the sticky winds of winter when they meet

When lonely lovers come to rest

Beneath the trees they do their best

But still they cant be free

Looking for the world to be

Anything but what they see

Longing to be understood

By the heart that shapes the wood



If you go into the forest, gaze up through the leaves

And see the sky thats almost wild

You must learn to understand

What makes the forest greet the man

Like a mothers only child



In the north when when winters claw

Relaxes now to keep the laws of nature in control

People come and stand in line

To rob the forest of her wine

But they dont feel the cold



Looking for the world to be

Anything but what they see

Longing to be understood

By the heart that shapes the wood



Love and maple syrup goes together

Like the sticky winds of winter when they meet

When lonely lovers come to rest

Beneath the trees they do their best

But still they cant be free



Love and maple syrup shine like

Embers warm, like thoughts divine

They tell us it is spring

Love and maple syrup stir

The thoughts of people into words

Of songs that they can sing



Looking for the world to be

Anything but what they see

Longing to be understood

By the heart that shapes the wood
