Onward and over the seasons turn I'm not letting you go, I'm not ready to go Stay until the mourning shows After all the people go I won't deny When you leave the winter rushes in Through the holes in the sky Like lonely islands Onward and over the seasons turn I'm not letting you go, I'm not ready to go Former and future; it all will merge I'm not letting you go, I'm not ready to go So you're making plans I've studied all the maps you've pinned up On the clothesline But they're only temporary trails Borders will change waters will rise Leaving lonely islands Former and future; it all will merge I'm not letting you go, I'm not ready to go Onward and over the seasons turn I'm not letting you go, I'm not ready to go

You can lose me in the crowd In the searching eyes Looking for someone looking for nobody Nothing satisfies What I need is a new start You can look at lady liberty But you can't get inside her head Marvel the structure The architecture Send a postcard to a friend I wish you were here But what I really wish for Is a new start Rows and rows of dominoes Waiting to fall one by one Into the ocean What I think I need Is a place where all my Problems will leave me Plain in anonymity You can lose me in the crowd The people are your shroud All I really need Is a new start

We packed up a car I don't know whose it was With blankets and beers we stopped for gas and chocolate bars We got lost, we got found And out sorrows we drowned In Rockaway In Rockaway The radio broke So we sang songs instead A girl I didn't know With a copper bracelet - put her hand in my hand Oh but hands lead and lead away If only nightbirds could stay In Rockaway In Rockaway We sat on the shore And stripped down to our skin And ran to the sea The water was cold but she went in so I did In that space between dusk and dawn You don't always know which side of a dream you're on In Rockaway In Rockaway The tide starts creeping in Taking what it will Wood and rocks and bones Returned to the world below After breakfast we slept Until late afternoon All over the house And in the front lawn - all of the neighbors were gone And somewhere in my sleep I knew there was nothing I could keep In Rockaway In Rockaway Some friends I have known For as long s we've grown Like blackberry vines Taking over the earth from the side of the road Tangled up in fruits and thorns Where rabbits ran and deer lock horns In Rockaway In Rockaway

When the season changed so suddenly A sweeping rain was swallowed by the river valley And we thought that last time had prepared us But rising water rises with a plain indifference We have to hold our goddess down We have to send the river back When the rain came it called out an army Tireless and hungry people went to working They joined hands beside the great Red River But despite assembling they could not hold together They climbed High above the river And watched Everything change together
5.
I will meet you in the garden We will shed our skin Leave our old bodies and look on them And our new ones could be anything Greener, greens And blues so deep They'd make The delta weep Sunflowers And a purple sky Volcanos crash Sparks fly Bodies of brass Heavenly cast The statues will come Into the light at last The moon has turned The rains have passed The sands have burned Into sheets of glass Leave our bodies And look on them Our new ones Could be anything

Little white forest flower at the grasses edge Running on the eaves the frost is creeping You can feel it in your knees I have never been so still I'm a wolf watching stalking its kill I will play the game The wilderness untamed Feels no pleasure feels no pain I wash my clothes in the sink I twist my shirt and wring the water free I look into the tea before I drink I twist a lemon and wring the bitterness free The bees are sleeping so they won't miss A drop of honey a little sweetness Little white forest flower no one else will see I have to come to rest in a vacant nest In the skeleton trees

There's no daylight, there's no sun This old engine won't turn over I feel lucky I can see my breath Means that I'm still kicking in this icebox On the northern edge The vertigo is forming stars The slowing down of a tired comet I feel defeated, I can feel my hands Turning into twisted jagged icicles Hanging from the ledge It's just me and some distant howl Reaching for the big old moon Everything that I knew Changes so soon The fields were gold now they're frozen dirt The birds have all flown south The better it feels the more it will hurt Her name burns in my mouth I feel grateful there's something else besides Mother Nature strains you, plains you But she provides There's no night-time, there's no sun It's all one continuous motion

The door is open, everyone is welcome A song summons our voices in a ramshackle chorus Stories I know well but seem new every time They're told at the table, I feel something graceful The geese in the flyway Look at the baby so small in my hands She made it just barely but make it, she did Look at her mother and her mother's mother In the kitchen together In my mind that is where they were forever The geese in the flyway The words pour forth from out hearts The wine fills our cups and fills them again The stories we all know fade when we're alone A picture that depends on each piece of the puzzle When it comes in focus: no matter what broke us We all can be joyous in tranquil observance Of the geese in the flyway

From the western edge of highway one To the east of appalachia I got my ticket baby here I come Following the Crows and colors Toward September A letter written with a nervous hand With a stroke of a shaky pen Bottled up and buried in the sand Castles built and Taken under Gone without a trace Watch the clouds along the coastal range Through the desert and the empty space In Pennsylvania you can almost taste The mountain laurels When I lay these flowers on this grave And do the math to find the final age I think of all the different ways Darling don't Be long in waiting The locks and every Window breaking The darkness won't be Long in taking You

Radiating life Clicking in the trees Listening for A fluttering of wings Not all old habits have to break I can play this game of hangman all night Guessing letters while she draws the noose Every line you draw Every stroke of heat Brands my side In hurried ecstasy Tenacious honey bee Buzzing collecting The sticky sweet To bring home to the queen Not all old habits have to break I can play this game of hangman all night Guessing letters while you draw the noose I can play these games with you all night Anything I can do to amuse I can play these games with you all night Anything I can do to amuse Never letting on how much I love you Letters fall like stars shaking loose
11.
I like your look, your sailor mouth The way you sing instead of speak I like your books and arguments Your uncommon sense of common sense We got the world on a rope There's nowhere we can't go Roots runs deep but roots come free There's nothing we can't be You've come so close with no remorse I know I've known you before Maybe now we'll see the past And future crossing the other's path Release The water's clean and rushing through us The emptiness is in the far-off distance We got the world on a rope Swinging in the wind Something broke, you will cope Honey just let it go
12.
In the morning by the sea As the fog clears from the sand I have no money in my hand I have no home, I have no land But it doesn't trouble me As I lay beside the fire I am easy to inspire There is little I require I wasn't yours and you weren't mine Though I've wished from time to time We had faced a common ground Your voice was such a welcome sound How the emptiness would fill With the waves and with your song People find where they belong Or keep on Through the never-ending maze Where the way is seldom clear There is no map or compass near I drive a ship I can not steer Through the bleak and early Where a stronger will is sworn Where the moments move so slow And seem to never let go When my hands are old and ache And my memory flickers dim And my bones don't hold my skin And there's no place I haven't been I'll recall the days were few That is all that I can do Feel the carvings in the tree That gave shape for you and me
