4 days leave

four days leave
and all she wants
is you, you, you
and all you want
is do, do, do
paint, paint the wall
paint the house, paint
the garden, paint the whole
world, paint the trim, paint
the end, paint the begin
stillness, illusive, war wrinkled
lined you, your irises faded faded
like the wild prairie sky, the wild flax
the fox in the long grass, the deadly stillness
inside, paint it, paint it, blue
soldier only four days leave
all she wants is you, you, you,
all you can is do, do, do.
