The Fog In Monterey

Thom Moore
Some days the fog in Monterey comes Blowing from the grove above, and then tears away The drifting patches lift and fold Then sunlight cuts them white and cold In Monterey -- fog comes, oh, then It tears away A heart sick lover comes to stay; She leaves the one she loves behind, And then tears away. She walks the hill in sudden wonder; Is she dead or just undone? She's lost her way -- love comes, oh, then It tears away Some nights this girl in Monterey Lies dreaming in her room above, then tears away: Her eyes are on her lover's face; He smiles, and she can hardly wait -- Is it night or day? -- dream comes, oh, then It tears away But now that morning's on its way Too soon the dreamer's drowned in fog that tears away The clouds that cover Monterey Crowd by as if they're here to say "We never stay -- she comes, oh, then She tears away" Some days the fog in Monterey comes Blowing from the grove above, then tears away; It comes--oh, then It tears away.
