lyrics

When I hear the thunder in Fairmount in spring
Roll again, the passing years like drops in the puddle
I was stepping in–
And the squalls of heavenward trampolined cats
Spin and land, and little man, the laughter your body
Could muster then.

Now I'm here, the bus coughing dust on the sash–
The hydaulics hiss–and the sky is green in my avatar's
Distant view–
And the sun sets on oblivion town,
The mountains burn for the time when I would have settled
For less than this.

And back in the world,
The remnants of the ones that I once chose
To do without...

I'll be here, or where and when you need.
And if you're lost and broken then I'll be
Where you are.

When I cross the bridge we once cycled beneath
I hear the words from your mouth–they tumble out clumsy
And meaningless.
You say it slow–you say it under your breath–
That I am a fool, but you know you could have settled
For less than this.

I'll be here....
