Lyrics

I’ll take a teaspoon of your goodness while I can
Wander like a traveler from the desert to your shady land
And maybe when I leave I will depart a better man
Oh, I’ll take just a teaspoon of your goodness while I can

I’ll spend ten winters in the drifts of Calgary
And curse the winter winds for what they’ve done to me
Well maybe just a teaspoon of your love will set me free
Can anyone promise me that?
I’ll bet these ten years on that

Oh, oh, oh…

I had frustration at the things I seemed to miss
And I fought to jump time and space with both fists
But that’s the time for that, and this the time for this
And I’ll take just a teaspoon of your goodness while I can

Oh, oh, oh…

I was flat on paper, and you made me something real
Formed me to the flesh, and fought for me to feel
Well maybe by proximity I’ll stand in your heat
And I’ll pick up the goodness that falls at your feet

Oh, oh, oh…
