Thread Name: Lyr: Sometimes When I Get To Thinkin (Sainte-Marie
Subject: Lyr Req: Sometimes When I Get to Thinking
Could someone contribute the lyrics for the beautiful Buffy Sainte-Marie's song "Sometimes When I Get To Thinking"?
I searched a lot but wasn't able to find the words on the Internet.

I fell in love with this song when i heard Neko Case cover it in the radio program Sound Opinions:
[Sound Opinions with Neko Case] <-- click for MP3
but i can't make out all the words

Sometimes I recall what others have said:
love is for lovers in love and full grown,
life's for the living and death's for the dead,
and the depth of a heart is a fathom unknown

I know you know all about love,
you know I know nothing at all,
still why should I ever be blue
when the blink of your eye makes ????

([more stuff i don't understand])

sewing (?) and growing and learning to care
for ourselves and preparing
for each others' arms

(are there more verses?)

Many thanks,
