lyrics

I was dreaming of the Maldives on a Sunday afternoon
when you came around at last.
I charged out the doorway and down to the street
and wrapped you up in my arms so fast.
You had a bag of tangerines under one arm
and a handful of days old mail.
I poured two cups of kombucha and we sat in the grass;
strength had filled eyes once so frail.

We took to the station, got a train bound for Sendai,
and watched the Japanese wildflowers bloom.
We dropped some coins in the pail of a street orchestra
and danced to the rich flutes and bassoons.
Breaking free from cities, drifting through hills,
I took you to the mountain where we'd first seen ghosts.
We scaled the tallest summits and planted seeds at every peak,
crossed chasms by way of bridges of rope.
