Lyrics: Robert Hunter
Music: Rob Barraco
A Hunter/Barraco song from The Dragonflys CD.
Well, most of the time I watch and wonder
Is anything worth what it takes to earn?
Well most of the time it all depends
On lessons I don't seem to ever learn
Lovin' another's never easy, let alone
Treating thy neighbor as thy own self in
A high stakes poker game
But I'll bet you a hundred dollars to a dime
The wall that I climb is the wall from which I fall
But I'll climb again when you say "when"
You wear the moon and the stars around your finger
They rise and they shine when you tell them to
They fall back down to land when you wave your hand
How it is that happens I don't know
One and all fall, then they rise back once again
Over yonder garden wall when you say
"When," when you say "when"
You may tell me it's time to take what's mine
Or let it all go - win, lose or show, you know
It all depends when you say "when"
Got a card in the mail, here's what it read
Keep your dead ass out of jail and keep the baby fed
Well I been sweating in the cold wet wind and rain
Well I been tryin' to tune the whistle on
A hellbound diesel train
Well I been tryin' with all my homesick soul
To see you again, me and all of my friends
Know it all depends, it all depends
Depends on when, when you say "when"
