this is a tune for maryanne
died at birth in her grandfathers hands
if she were here now she wouldn’t understand
the notes we are playing,
the words we are saying
to her it would be just
la-da-da-la-da-dum…

there isn’t a cross word that i can say
because i’ve been blessed with a part in the play
but even if i don’t make the curtain call
i was in the cast, and i signed the wall

i’ll be the witch this time and then
next time it’ll be you
you must believe that
after all maryanne
i would grow old and tall in this life,
but next time you’ll be richer, you’ll be taller
la-da-da-la-da-dum

Wanderers this morning came by
Where did they go
Graceful in the morning light
To banner fair
To follow you softly
In the cold mountain air

Through the forest
Down to your grave
Where the birds wait
And the tall grasses wave
They do not
know you anymore

Dear shadow alive and well
How can the body die
You tell me everything
Anything true

In the town one morning I went
Staggering through premonitions of my death
I don’t see anybody that dear to me

Dear shadow alive and well
How can the body die
You tell me everything
Anything true

Jesse
I don’t know what I have done
I’m turning myself to a demon
I don’t know what I have done
I’m turning myself to a demon

“So apropos
Saw death on a sunny snow”

[Him:]
“For every life…”

[Her:]
“forego the parable.”

[Him:]
“Seek the light.”

[Her:]
“…my knees are cold.”

Running home
Running home
Running home
Running home

[Her:]
“Go find another lover;
To bring a- to string along!”

“With all your lies,
You’re still very lovable.”

“I toured a light
So many foreign roads
For Emma, forever ago.”
