lyrics

LOO LA LAY LAND WON'T YOU ASK ME TO STAY?
YOU TAKE FROM THE GROUND THEN YOU GIVE ME AWAY,
I ASKED FOR THE LEAVES, SHE STOOD UP TO DANCE,
LEAVING ME RESTLESS WITHOUT A CHANCE.

TAKE FROM THE COTTAGE, THE BRICKS AND THE SAND,
JUST KEEP FOR THE FUTURE THE GOODNESS OF LAND,
THERE'S SO MANY VIEWS, IT'S SO HARD TO SEE,
BEAUTY OF NATURE, BEAUTY OF LAND.

I WILL REST HERE FOR THE NIGHT THAT WILL COME,
I'LL ANSWER TO NO-ONE BUT THE FARMER AND GUN,
I'M THE DAUGHTER OF LAND, THE COUSIN OF EARTH,
YOU CAN LIE WITH ME, WE CAN BE ONE.

CHILDREN OF EDEN ASK WHAT THEY HAVE DONE,
SO MANY QUESTIONS OF WHAT MAN'S BECOME,
IF THEY COULD FIND FRUIT BUT STILL NOT RESIST,
THE LURE OF TEMPTATION, LAW OF THE LAND.

I CANNOT WONDER, YET I CANNOT STAND,
HERE IN ONE CITY, HERE IN ONE LAND,
IF I CANNOT ASK WHAT NATURE WILL BRING,
THEN I CANNOT LISTEN, I WILL JUST SING.

LOO LA LAY LAND WON'T YOU ASK ME TO STAY?
YOU TAKE FROM THE GROUND THEN YOU GIVE ME AWAY,
I ASKED FOR THE LEAVES, SHE STOOD UP TO DANCE,
LEAVING ME RESTLESS WITHOUT A CHANCE.
