Sweet smelling summer nights

Summer night in Nea Fokea, Macedonia, Greece / I.A. Daglis
In days of peace -
sweet smelling summer nights
of wine and song;
dusty pavements burning feet.
Why am I crying, I want to know.
How can I smile and make it right?
For sixty days and eighty nights
and not give in and lose the fight.

I'm going back to the ones that I know,
with whom I can be what I want to be.
Just one week for the feeling to go --
and with you there to help me
then it probably will.

Ian Anderson [With you there to help me - in Benefit, 1970]
