I OWE YOU
(Paul Metsers)

Have you still got those pages?
From friends of days gone by
Their words, in paper cages
?Came winging through the sky?
Or did you make some bargain?
That one day you would rue
?Like the hasty note the gambler wrote
The loserís I.O.U.

It seems the days are speeding
The time it strips the bone?
The snow it falls beside the wall
And follows winterís moan
And through the crystal window
The ever-changing hue?
The years decline, the debt is mine
How will I pay my due

I.O.U. for mystery
?I.O.U. for colour
?I.O.U. for children?
Born in love and labour
And I.O.U. for letting go
When parting needs must sever
And I.O.U. for holding on
I.O.U. forever

They say no oneís an island
That each on some depends
But lonely hearts and silence
Make such bitter friends
For to have your own true lover
Is to live in fortuneís glow
But try as you may, youíll never pay
Your lover what you owe

I.O.U. for mystery
?I.O.U. for colour?
I.O.U. for children
?Born in love and labour
And I.O.U. for letting go
When parting needs must sever
And I.O.U. for holding on
I.O.U. forever
