Lyrics

I have been afraid of the truth
don't say it
I have been afraid of the truth
every moment clue after clue
every moment bells ringing
wake up you!
I just roll over

when you climbed inside this shell
you suspended all
to become a story written in the marrow
directed by stars
cued up by symbols and signs
by heron and by season
by fruit and by wine

who can name the root of this fear
don't say it
who can name the root of this fear
just watch the last leaf
quiver and cling to the tree
I am that leaf

I was 26 years old when the panic seized me
unrecognizable when she came to meet me
a lily from beyond
handed me by a stranger
a promise of spring
in the midst of deep freeze
