Lyrics

Just like the white winged dove
Sings a song, sounds like she's singing
Ooo, ooo, ooo
Just like the white winged dove
Sings a song, sounds like she's singing
Ooo, baby, ooo

Said "Ooo"
And the days go by like a strand in the wind
In the web that is my own, I begin again

Said to my friend, baby, nothin' else mattered
He was no more than a baby then
Well he seemed broken hearted
Something within him
But the moment that I first laid
Eyes on him, all alone

On the edge of... seventeen
Just like the white winged dove
Sings a song, sounds like she's singing
I said "Ooo, baby, ooo"
Said "Ooo"
Just like the white winged dove

Sings a song, sounds like she's singing
I said "Ooo, baby, ooo"
Said "Ooo"
Well, I went today
Maybe I will go again tomorrow

Yea yea, well, the music there
Well, it was hauntingly familiar
Well, I see you doing what I try to do for me
With the words from a poet and a voice from a choir
And a melody, nothing else mattered
Just like the white winged dove

Sings a song, sounds like she's singing
I said "Ooo, baby, ooo"
Said "Ooo"
Just like the white winged dove
Sings a song, sounds like she's singing
I said "Ooo, baby, ooo"

Said "Ooo"
The clouds never expect it when it rains
But the sea changes colours, but the sea
Does not change
And so with the slow, graceful flow of age
I went forth with an age old desire to please

On the edge of... seventeen
Just like the white winged dove
Sings a song, sounds like she's singing
I said "Ooo, baby, ooo"
Said "Ooo"
Just like the white winged dove
Sings a song, sounds like she's singing
I said "Ooo, baby, ooo"

Said "Ooo"
Well, then suddenly
There was no one left standing in the hall, yeah yeah
In a flood of tears
That no one really ever heard fall at all
Well, I went searchin' for an answer

Up the stairs and down the hall
And not to find an answer
Just to hear the call
Of a nightbird singing "Come away" (Come away)
Just like the white winged dove
Sings a song, sounds like she's singing

Ooo, baby, ooo
Said "Ooo"
Just like the white winged dove
Sings a song, sounds like she's singing
I said "Ooo, baby, ooo"
Said "Ooo"
Well I hear you in the morning
And I hear you at nightfall
Sometime to be near you
Is to be unable to hear you, my love
I'm a few years older than you
(I'm a few years older than you) my love
Just like the white winged dove
Sings a song, sounds like she's singing
Ooo, baby, ooo
Said "Ooo"
Just like the white winged dove
Sings a song, sounds like she's singing
Ooo, baby, ooo
Said "Ooo"
