about

the words were made in a rush of intensity. ..i was more concerned with the emotion than the meaning. elegance and beauty mattered little here.

lyrics

i fell asleep
and all of the words
..
fell out of the the world.
let freedom bring
the burning sky.
love in the night.
a drowning child.
....
a peaceful light
the lost letter
a day together
husbands and wives
two brothers cry
a kiss in the night
..
i fell asleep
may my sons keep
starlight and dreams
a rushing river
a bridge to somewhere
the music we make
the love we remember
.....
and when we awake
to a broken day
the music we make
is taken away
....
but i fell asleep
and all of the words
..
fell out of the the world.
let freedom bring
the burning sky.
love in the night.
a drowning child.
