lyrics

“I dreamt that I walked to the end of the pathway from the door, and when I looked to the East 
there were Jesus comin’ down with angels on each side.” —Gladwyn “Miss Lassie” Bush

i was stretching
stretching to touch the hem
like a taut rubber band
twelve years i’ve bled for it
slower than a sin’s repent

i split two turtle doves
one from fear and one for love
i gave an unclean offering
i thought it would heal me 


i think he said
i think you know
it’s not the touch
it’s letting go
though chase was fit
and stretch was fine
it was release
that fixed your mind
let it go


like mosquitoes and stardust
people thronged full of lust
jealous me
impetuous parasite
craving host 


we were thinking we’re half a whole
two magnets polar and blind
but darling i’m a full round bowl
and the whole world’s in my mind
i’ll let you go
if drought has drained you to almost dry
then give out all that you have
pour it in the roaring sea
and when it rains you’ll laugh
let love grow
let love flow


everything is in cycles
carbon clocks
karma cash
you will push
then you’ll be pulled
the desperate learn fast
let it go
