lyrics

Leaf and then stem
and leaf again and stem again
I’m not confused about
my path
when I look at them

Lifted from some ailing place
grown continuity
She lifts her arm into an old shape
and tries to “be”
Light rearranging

word to my mouth
to speak
to see it so

word to my mouth
to meet
to drink

word to my mouth
to leave
to need you so

Like her
We set out to leave the house of old history
building something new
up and proud
with my new person

As we packed the van up
there wasn’t enough room

So, I gave her away

We’re going for a drive now
into the double grey
we can’t take everyone
so you guys have to stay
