|I THOUGHT you loved me.|
No, it was only fun.
|When we stood there, closer than all?|
Well, the harvest moon
|Was shining and queer in your hair, and it turned my head.|
|That made you?|
Just the moon and the light it made
|Under the tree?|
Well, your mouth too.
Yes, my mouth?
|And the quiet there that sang like the drum in the booth.|
|You shouldnt have danced like that.|
|With your head turned up, and the flower in your hair, a rose|
|That smelt all warm.|
I loved you. I thought you knew
|I wouldnt have danced like that with any but you.|| 10|
|I didnt know. I thought you knew it was fun.|
|I thought it was love you meant.|
Well, its done.
Yes, its done.
|Ive seen boys stone a blackbird, and watched them drown|
it clawed at the reeds, and they pushed it down|
|Into the pool while it screamed. Is that fun, too?|| 15|
|Well, boys are like that
Yes, I know.
|But you, so lovely and strong! Not you! Not you!|
|They dont understand its cruel. Its only a game.|
|And are girls fun, too?|
No, still in a way its the same.
|Its queer and lovely to have a girl
|It makes you mad for a bit to feel shes your own,|
|And you laugh and kiss her, and maybe you give her a ring;|
|But its only in fun.|
But I gave you everything.
|Well, you shouldnt have done ityou know what a fellow thinks|
|When a girl does that.|
Yes, he talks of her over his drinks
|And calls her a|
Stop that, nowI thought you knew.
|But it wasnt with anyone elseit was only you.|
|How did I know? I thought you wanted it too|
|I thought you were like the rest. Well, whats to be done?|
|To be done?|
Is it all right?
Yes, but why?
|I dont knowI thought you were going to cry|
|You said you had something to tell me.|
Yes, I know.
|It wasnt anything really
I think Ill go.|
|Yes, its late. Theres thunder about, a drop of rain|
|Fell on my hand in the dark. Ill see you again|| 35|
|At the dance next week. Youre sure that everythings right?|
Well, Ill be going.
