lyrics

I don’t remember
if there’d been a dream
when my feet hit the floor.
I closed my eyes to the stones i threw
at you.

The clouds were swollen,
but I couldn’t feel the wind
blowing cold across my face.
I fell from the tree to the earth below,
broken.

Now shame has dropped her cloak
upon my shoulders,
because now I know the sorrow
that would be tomorrow without you here
with me.

If I tear at the ground
beneath your baobab tree,
would you choke the devil’s thorns?
Don’t you ever make me to wear that crown
again.

I have no words for you
but to make myself naked,
to lift my hands to your chest,
to keep writing you letters across the atlantic:
I’m yours.

Now I have gone away
somewhere across the sea—
to find the apple core,
to burn my scars in the sun, and come home
to you.

The fever dream is past,
and I wait by the window
and watch the sun rising.
Your heart beats across the horizon
to me.

Meet me in the garden
where the earth still sings.
Beneath the gate to Eden,
I'll wrestle the angel of the burning sword
for you.

Come home.

about

The Second Wind Endeavor Taos, New Mexico

And I'll tell it, and think it, and speak it, and breathe it;
and reflect from the mountain so all souls can see it;
and I'll stand on the ocean until I start sinking,
but I'll know my song well before I start singing.
-Bob Dylan
