Cruel as it sounds The wind will blow All of the dust we’d settle for Fool for the wheel The tide and the sun No season comes more than once

Your children are not your own They are sons and daughters of life's longing for itself Through you they come, but now from you Though they are with you, to you they don't belong You may give them your love, but not your thoughts For they have their own thoughts You may house their bodies, but not their souls For their souls dwell in the house of tomorrow Your children are not your own They are sons and daughters of life's longing for itself Through you they come, but now from you Though they are with you, to you they don't belong You may strive to be like them But don't seek to make them just like you House their bodies, but not their souls For their souls dwell in the house of tomorrow You may give them your love, but not your thoughts For they have their own thoughts You may house their bodies, but not their souls For their souls dwell in the house of tomorrow

Now the road will bend a little for you Bend as far as you can take Now the road will bend a ways without me Bend and bend until you break Now the way will loom a little wider Wide the eyes that watch me die But the ways beyond the straight and narrow Loom low down and gallows high Now the earth might move and shake beneath you Rock you like a lover's arms Heaven help the mover and shaker Who is rocked by worldly charms How many times must I say this? How many lines must I write? One of these words sure has landed Taken root or flight Now the sun will rise too fast to follow Set too soon for your day's rest But the road will bend a little for you Bend and bend: it was your request

I am the well, the root, and womb I am the cradle and the tomb I am the insulation I am the oldest friend of time I am the endless uphill climb I am the insulation I am the shadows on the wall I am the bottom of the fall I am the insulation of your soul If you find yourself in darkness Test your eyes Better to be lost and looking for the light Before it blinds

Am I the one To take a chance? Am I the one Who dreams out loud? Am I the one To stay the course that I am on For all it makes of me? Am I the one To sound alarms? Am I the one To feed the fire? Am I the one Who burns inside for everyone To feel that something's wrong? If I'm the one to speak Let me say it now: If there's a spark It's not so far from the flame If there is one earth, one human race upon it Then what could be missing? If I'm the one to speak Let me say it now: If there's a spark We're not so far from the flame If there is one world, one human race to fill it Then what could be missing? If I'm the one To take the chance If I'm the one Who dreams out loud If I'm the one To stay the course that I am on What will you make of me?

Bright star, would I were stedfast as thou art— Not in lone splendour, hung aloft the night Bright star watching, with eternal lids apart, Like nature's patient, sleepless Eremite, The moving waters at their priestlike task Of pure ablution round earth's human shores, Or gazing on the new soft-fallen mask Of snow upon the mountains and the moors— No—yet still steadfast, still unchangeable, Pillow'd upon my fair love's ripening breast, To feel forever its soft swell and fall, Awake forever in a sweet unrest, Still, still to hear her tender-taken breath, And so live ever—or else swoon to death.

Falling through the basement floor You only fall so far Before you learn that everyone should know how to fall Falling from the mountain top You only fall so fast Before you see what everyone should understand: Falling isn’t flying But falling is the only way to know What is up and what is down High, high, how high we climb... Falling to your knees might feel like You have lost your way Before you learn – like everyone – to stand again and again
8.
It’s only a room for rent Windows without a door No deposit No security Stay a while in your own company Pay the price of longevity May you find much more than time to fill the room

Long people blocking the sun Tall letters, tales on a hill And the fly-by angels sound Long life at all of the cost Big, glass houses built in the sand And the wide world fades to black With night comes a stolen sky The stars fall into the street There is no afterglow for dreams that fall so far
10.
04:31
I give you my heart And take the beating I open my hand And lose my hold I lift up my soul And fall in darkness I love you the same No matter the cost: All we ever said of love in the time of flying The beating of wings and odds, The broken, unbeatable heart All the blue is black All the green is gray All the dreams are dark as they are real All the light is out All the silence comes All is lost but us, everything but us… And all we ever said of love in the time of flying The beating of wings and odds, The broken, unbeatable heart
11.
Will you be coming home? Will you return to me? No is the answer now No is how it must be Cruel as it sounds The wind will blow All of the dust we’d settle for Fool for the wheel The tide and the sun No season comes more than once

about

A ten song journey, a dynamically ranging expression that beckons ancient firesides, enchanted hills, and the nexus of earth and sky.
