Where the sun ridges the snow Like cold weather's pot marigolds, I want to hold it in my hands Wrap my fingers around winter's last chance You can see it in the ice on the lake Pink and blue chrome, icing on the cake I want to taste what's between us, honey You seem to feel the same ache Are you as lonely as Are you as lonely as Are you as lonely as my love? I take pictures of cardinals and the moon But they never turn out just how I want them to I wish that I could wrap this scene And bring it straight to you We'd set it all up on a big projector screen And laugh it all off til we fall asleep Til you're looking for a drawer where you can keep your things And I'm just trying to find the right words to sing Are you as lonely as Are you as lonely as Are you as lonely as my love?

A Mystery 03:53
I wrote this hoping that you'd hear it on a Sunday afternoon And it goes with whatever you're reading and the scenery Just try it on, just try it out for me I've been singing your name to the beat, like-- I read your story once in a dream Our threads are connected like a pretty little latticework piece And it goes with whatever you're wearing and the scenery Just try it on, you'll figure me out I'm friends with the weather but I'm floating on a sea of sorrows like-- I hold my tongue enough Keep it tight, closed, shuddered up And it goes with whatever you want of me, I'll be scenery But I'd like to be a riddle, a limit undefined A mystery is sleeping in every mind A mystery is sleeping in every mind A mystery is sleeping in--

Skip me a stone on your rippled laugh hello In the glade of green-laced heat Comb my hair clean like sheets when they swing on the line A garden smile We live slow in the gift overgrowth Sweet, fermenting, decomposing love Composing love Draw me a rose and a bath and I'll float Lucky drunken fly in a glass of wine We live slow in the gift overgrowth Sweet, fermenting, decomposing love Composing love
