Eric & Polly Rapp: Music

Who Knows?

(© 2009 Eric Rapp. All rights reserved.)
Eric wrote this song around New Year's Day. This is a rough demo recording.

Who knows how this new year's going to go?
It may end up like last year, I don't know,
but fortune's winds will blow on good friend or on foe.
Who knows how this new year's going to go?

Who knows how this new day's going to end?
Where all the time goes I can't comprehend.
All the time I spend, I won't get back again.
Who knows how this new day's going to end?

Who knows if my time will come around?
My ship comes in, my train rolls in to town?
Though I'm even pound for pound, I always get knocked down.
Who knows if my time will come around?

Where are all the people I have known?
Where are all the friendships I have sown?
Mutual interests are outgrown, still the fault is all my own.
Where are all the people I have known?

Who knows why you love me like you do?
Before you, days of love for me were few.
Despite all we've been through, your love is always new.
Who knows why you love me like you do?

Who knows how this new year's going to go?
It may end up like last year, I don't know,
but fortune's winds will blow on good friend or on foe.
Who knows how this new year's going to go?
