I've been taking all I can take
I've been giving a love that'll break
When I met you I was a snake
But you warmed me with the light from your face

You flew like a fairy, a whisper of night
But you left me at the sign of first light
When I held you, no sparks in my heart
Were awakened til we drifted apart

When I'm left to my own devices
I settle for singing, a melody suffices
And I know that the truth is you're so far away
In the pastures I'm after, just beyond the gate

You are laughter, the clapping of hands
I'm an actor with a part I can't stand
But if I ever find you again, I'll rip this script to shreds
Every word I left unsaid
Will echo, Babe, from just outside your gate


from The Warmer Winds, released October 4, 2013
