lyrics

Fist of flowers,
Pile of looks,
Shook by glowers:
Frost, wrist, books

Listen, stone,
A bridge we're building-
Quick but slow,
Green but burning

Wild and low the songs we carried:
Not to show the loves we'll marry
Or share with hares or crows or berries,
but to bring home;
Beech, oak and cherry

Did I need you? Well I guess we're through-
What to do with all this longing?
Friend, I love you, you light up the place!
I'll kiss you today- not a thing is for keeping.
Tomorrow will you go away?
Shadows in the grass come creeping

Lightning rod, one of many
Made of sod, cries, laughs, plenty
Where to start and what to end with?
Confusions arise I must contend with!
Wild eyes my days to spend with!

I went out in the rain last night-
I came back as a red-winged blackbird;
Threw a stone at a star with all of my might,
I cried and a cried and I just got tireder;
Gave up trying to win that fight
And my cuts grew scabs and my load got lighter;
Like a fine-tailed, colored kite I'll wake from my dreams
That foul all-nighter...

Green is grass under the snowfall,
Trees by the stream and squirrels frozen paws.
To make it there by stride or crawl-
Swallowed by the world and All

Oh, shine through!

Did I need you? Well I guess we're through-
What to do with all this longing?
Friend, I love you, you light up the place!
I'll kiss you today- not a thing is for keeping.
Tomorrow will we go away?
Hold my hand, release your weeping;
Through the cracks in the door wind finds a way,
Through the window shines the sunlight speaking.
