From the recording Love is home


I woke up when I was forty five
strange things happened to me
I sit up there with stun in my eyes
the stream winds down to the sea

a butterfly in a yellow gown
is dancing round my feet
I found such beauty just right out of town
my heart spares no effort to beat

Oh what a hush, what a blaze, what a light
cold clear water runs through my hands and through my mind
no mournful praise just love and haze
no evidence of a dawn
life is always younger than the sun

I follow the trail up to the pass
I hope to recover my face
brothers and sisters are everywhere
just like rocks and stars out in space

I won’t go back to hunt in a pack
I don’t miss the heat and the noise
come and join me up here in peace
just you and me and the boys
