Grateful Dead

Comes A Time

Lyrics By: Robert Hunter
Music By: Jerry Garcia

Comes a time when the blind man takes your hand (note 1)
Says "don't you see?"
Gotta make it somehow
On the dreams you still believe
Don't give it up
You got an empty cup
Only love can fill
Only love can fill

Been walking all morning
Went walking all night
I can't see much difference
Between the dark and light
And I feel the wind
And I taste the rain
Never in my mind
To cause so much pain

From day to day
Just letting it ride
You get so far away
From how it feels inside
You can't let go
'Cause you're afraid to fall
But the day may come
When you can't feel at all

(1) Garcia sang "when the blind man takes your arm" in some early performances
