For The Glory


Sow the wind and reap the whirlwind
Through the rain and through the shine
Only something with a meaning
Can stand the test of time

I really shoulda told ya
I really wanna hold ya
You gotta know that you won't miss your water 'til your well runs dry

Cast the spell and catch the spell bound
Sing the song and bang the drum
Feel the need and just believe
The best is yet to come

I really shoulda told ya
I really wanna hold ya
You gotta know that you won't miss your water 'til your well runs dry

When the bombs began to fall
I didn't do it for the roses
As I was striding ten feet tall
Well, that's another story, for the glory

The good that you do
Will carry you through, yeah yeah
I did it for you
I didn't do it for the glory

Cry like you've never cried before
See my picture on your wall
Laugh like you never laughed at all as
All is meant to be
And wonders never cease

When the bombs began to fall
I didn't do it for the roses
As I was striding ten feet tall
Well, that's another story, for the glory

The good that you do
Will carry you through, yeah yeah
I did it for you
I didn't do it for the glory

Details:

You won't miss your water 'til your well runs dry (see also, All Ablaze) is a direct lift from Standing On Your Head.

Sow the wind and reap the whirlwind is a proverbial phrase derived from the Book of Hosea (8: 7), meaning to suffer serious consequences as a result of one's actions.

When the bombs began to fall, I didn't do it for the roses, is a slight variation on Heaven Help Us All by Stevie Wonder.
