lyrics

I was sitting by the river in the warm glow of your vision
The branches near the edge hung their heads and bowed
With their roots deep down in the ground and their hungry hands held out
It was a holy place, but I just couldn’t stand sitting

Well, my eyes rolled around till they found my feet walking
I had a scrape on my knee and I don’t know where I got it
And I sat down as the sun died down in a colorful fit of glory
I would wait, but you would never find me
Not this time
I got lost in the shadows of your mind

I was listening for the water through thick sheets of darkness
I was looking down the aisles like a child so nervous
And my crying eyes went wide, and the evening crawled inside
And showed me awful things I never even knew existed

And my heart beat loud to the sound of rotten laughter
I tore a hole in my throat begging for someone to answer
And I bloodied my sock on an old dead log with a broken mess of ankle
I wouldn’t have run if I’d have known I could shake ya
Just wanting to fly
I fell out the window of your mind

The wind began playing fractured flakes of recorded sayings
Words I heard so soothing burst bitter like thunder breaking
Old pictures I musta taken flashed naked and left me twitching
I stood behind you in the kitchen and we dissolved in a sea of dishes
I felt weightless as the silence sprouted white from behind my eyelids
I was floating through my veins till I poured through the hole in my leg
And I slid like a snake riding trails drawn by your breathing

I awoke by the river in the cool smoke of confusion
I looked down at the water, but my reflection wasn’t amusing
Then my face slid away as yours took its place and swallowed my eyes with your beauty
I fell in your arms and kissed every inch of your body
I fell in your arms and cried, shaking and smiling
I just couldn’t believe
I found you in the tunnel of a dream
