Lyrics

go – the wind sings and she floats from the branch…a single, blushing, whispering dance…how does she let go, so unafraid to trust the song invisibly played?...go…go…go….a gust and then they’re falling like snow…the blossoms fill the air as we go…a benediction under the trees…on our worn shoes and trembling knees…go…go…go…

 

through – heavy as the world we walked the foggy night, quiet and slow…you whispered your sleepy secrets, just as hope began to glow…through your unkept yard, and your unlocked door, from your undone heart, on your unswept floor…tender as a million kisses from the misty air that night…you breathed in and out the stillness, dusting off your heart to fight…through your unseen walls, with your unarmed tears, from unbroken falls, and unspoken fears…take comfort my friend, take comfort….we walked the foggy night, quiet and slow.

 

night song – stranded on this dark road in the country, wondering how we’ll make it home, but have you ever seen stars quite like this? lean your head back, see them glow…light…see that small one shining like a lamp and no one seems to be aware, but i guarantee it’s not forgotten, this brave watch-fire burning there…light…oh i guarantee you’re not forgotten, bravely keep on shining there

 

like water (for Mike) – all is not as it seems…look around, take it in, listen to the river as it sings…patiently, perfectly broken, perfectly broken…we run like water…we run like water…all is not lost as it seems, so we go steadily flowing over rocks and under dreams…beautifully, perfectly broken, perfectly broken…we run like water…we run like water

 

stay – have you checked behind the curtain? in the closet? under the bed, the bed, the bed, the bed? are you absolutely certain all of this is in my head? i insist the monsters are real…but You chase them away, away, away, away…and tell me “lie down and sleep now”…promising you will stay, stay, stay, stay, stay, stay….

 

mine – i am in the treetops, catching the last of the light, golden-green and tired of knowing you are right…i am in the treetops, singing out a song, soft and slow and full of knowing i was wrong…i am in the treetops, just below the moon, hanging like a silver charm, hoping you’ll come soon…i am in the treetops, searching for a sign, that your love has not grown cold, and you still are mine…will you still be mine? mine….mine…mine….

 

meet me – meet me at the corner by the lamppost i will stand…when you get there, you will wave and come and take my hand…come and take my hand…cause everyone gets lonely, sometimes we need a friend, to share the road and slowly, our wounded hearts do mend…meet me at the record store on 370 grand…when you get there, we will listen to our favorite band…to our favorite band…cause everyone gets gloomy, and needs a song to cheer…oh please stand closer to me…i’m just so glad you’re here…

 

winter song – quiet as winter…your frosty voice barely sighs…telling  your story…i will not lose this…even though my ears are cold…i’m still listening…and i will turn my eyes from myself and see you…if i am looking, i’ll see, i’ll see…i will turn my eyes from myself and see you…if i am looking i’ll see….i’ll see you…shivering bare floors…under the moon’s silver light…put your warm socks on…i will not fear this…though the chill is in our bones…we can share the fire…and i will turn my eyes from myself and see you…if i am looking i’ll see, i’ll see….i will turn my eyes from myself and see you…if i am looking i’ll see, i’ll see you….

 

weathered – watching the rain outside from our shelter safe and dry til the water leaks in and it soaks us to our skin and we are weathered…the snow that piles deep inside hides what summer left behind…the cold won’t keep us away…we put our warm coats on and stay…and we are weathered…we are weathered…love comes through the door, picks us off the floor, mends our sleeves, worn thin, in side out side in…we are weathered…we are weathered….the sun shines warm on our heads…

 

yours – you lean toward me i lean into you know how careful i am weighing every little look this is all i am finally over wishing i could be someone different than this girl you see standing here like this is taking all i am yours…i am yours…you run toward me i run into you know how clumsy i am falling over everything, this is all i am finally understanding a thing or two about this thing that i have with you are mending every part of all i am yours…i am yours…you lean toward me i lean into you….you lean toward me, i lean into you…
