lyrics

The Dream of You & Me

we were swallowed suddenly
the teeth a taxicab backseat
the throat the night of New Orleans
would wretch us to the beach
to leave us on the morning sand
two diamonds of the delta rain
and four enfolding hands to name
the dream of you & me
the dream of you & me has come again
it always laughs to wake us wondering

the second night suspended us
stealing every breath of lung
we felt the fear for air of one
who climbs the oldest tree
of life and limb, a tale and tongue,
some other land and a wilder sun
whispered we hadn't forgotten
the dream of you & me
the dream of you & me has come again
it always leads us back out to the wind

because not every night can love
some will flame and others flood
you said you saw me from above,
but unable to scream
you felt me move from far away
a Hudson River valley scape
with us so small inside that paint,
the dream of you & me
the dream of you & me has come again
it always leaves us distant, shivering

a hundred other angels flocked
that night around the tower clock
we all were wrapped one color cloth
I lost you in that sea
read aloud remaining rights
sent to fight for fading lines
beat to blissful dust inside
the dream of you & me
the dream of you & me has come again
it always gives us up to reckoning

has it been a thousand days
since that diamond delta rain?
did we drift these worlds away
to see what grew between?
to stretch the dawn across your waist
to see you as my eyelids break
there's not a rest I wouldn't trade
the dream of you & me
the dream of you & me will come again  
it always saw us two its one vision
the dream of you & me will come again
