"The Silence Between the Leaves and the Wings"

Can I come home to you
to feel right, to feel more alive
throw the diamonds in the lake
and swim your own way back to me

The silence
between the leaves and the wings
fill the hollowness of woods
with spring in the blood
of the crow

Your blouse is the note
my rhythm afloat
guess the mountains are safe for us
down in the grain
you ran wild and sang
spilling coffee all around you

Wind in the wheat
that strong withered horse
you say "all things are beautiful"
I'll be there if all
your mountains should fall
and pick you up
oh, pick you up

So weathered love
no need to rush
see the sky chases sun
wild deer on the run
only for a little while
I'm foolish for you
like tethering plumes
well maybe we're something new

Can I come home to you
to feel right, to feel more alive
