Sunday Song Lyrics: All I Know by Art Garfunkel (posted on Saturday*)

IMG_1345

Helen @ This Thing Called Life One Word at a Time theme is the love song with special meaning for Song Lyrics Sunday. My problem, many of those songs, either I’ve already used, or are coming up on Mindlovemisery’s Menagerie Friday Music Prompt (shameless self-promotion, lol, which I co-host with Sanaa R.).

I’ve been compiling a Simon and Garfunkel playlist, and my favourite Garfunkel tune is Jimmy Web’s “All I Know.” A bittersweet song to a lover, or a friend. It’s echoed in my head more than once, especially the first 3 lines. Of course, there doesn’t have to be an ending. There can be a coming together again: “It’s a fine line between the darkness and the dawn./They say in the darkest night there’s a light beyond.”

Recorded live at Ellis Island, NYC, 1996

I bruise you, you bruise me
We both bruise too easily, too easily to let it show
I love you and that’s all I know.

All my plans have fallin’ through,
All my plans depend on you, depend on you to help them grow,
I love you and that’s all I know.

When the singer’s gone let the song go on…

But the ending always comes at last,
Endings always come too fast,
They come too fast but they passed too slow,
I love you and that’s all I know.

When the singer’s gone let the song go on,
It’s a fine line between the darkness and the dawn.
They say in the darkest night there’s a light beyond

But the ending always comes at last,
Endings always come too fast,
They come too fast
But they past too slow,
I love you, and that’s all I know.
That’s all I know, that’s all I know.

Jimmy Web 1973

* posting a day early so I’m sure it goes live. My scheduler doesn’t always work properly and I’m not sure I’ll be on my computer much tomorrow.
