about

I wrote the first 2 verses of this song a few years back, but could never finish it until I met someone special a year and half ago.

lyrics

Verse 1:

I read from the Good Book
is there where I'm going?
you said "if we don't know Him,
but we still got time".
you leapt in the hammock
we made from a parachute
we found in the attic
after lolo had passed.

Verse 2:

You said "come and get me"
I did, yelling 'timber'
and fell into the blanket
punctuated with light
that took long to reach us
and when it arrived here
it lit up my fingers on your infinite back

If ever I'm hiding,
please remind me of days like no other,
invite me to gaze in your eyes

verse 3:

We painted the evening
stayed up til' the morning
as if we were dreaming
conversation and fire
that dripped from the Maple
Ghost Tree that you loved so
you said don't let me go
as my lips sang in praise
battle hymns gone ablaze

If ever I'm hiding,
please remind me of days like no other,
invite me to gaze in your eyes
and I will remember
and I will surrender
together
igniting the stars in the sky
