"Two Hungry Blackbirds"

"Two Hungry Blackbirds"


Lovers accustomed to tragedy
See every kiss in the window across the street
Breezes and blessings passin' by, oh

I'm in the shade of the dogwood tree
Not the one where you told your name to me
Two hungry blackbirds land nearby, oh

If I could be over you when the sky starts fallin'
Would you be happy under me?
If I could be under you if the Earth was burnin'
Could you be trusted over me?

Spoke to a mother whose baby drowned
Gave me advice, or a rumor she once heard
"Heaven's a distance, not a place," oh

Gave her an ear from the corn we grew
You were away but she gave her thanks to you
That was a year ago come May, oh

If I could be over you when the sky starts fallin'
Would you be smothered under me?
If I could be under you if the Earth was burnin'
Would you be cryin' over me?

I could hear kids in the yard next door
Cats in the brush when the calendar fell down
Wait by the shade-tree one more year, oh

Poetry tempered with tragedy
Tempted and pulled when you cry upon my sleeve
Two flocks of blackbirds meet the air, oh

If I could be over you when the sky starts fallin'
Would you be happy under me?
If I could be under you if the Earth was burnin'
Could you be trusted over me?

"Upward Over The Mountain"

"Upward Over The Mountain"


Mother, don't worry. I killed the last snake that lived in the creek bed
Mother, don't worry. I've got some money I saved for the weekend
Mother, remember being so stern with that girl who was with me?
Mother, remember the blink of an eye when I breathed through your body?

So may the sunrise bring hope where it once was forgotten
Sons are like birds flying upwards over the mountain

Mother, I made it up from the bruise on the floor of this prison
Mother, I lost it all of the fear of the Lord I was given
Mother, forget me now that the creek drank the cradle you sang to
Mother, forgive me I sold your car for the shoes that I gave you

So may the sunrise bring hope where it once was forgotten
Sons can be birds taken broken up to the mountain

Mother, don't worry. I've got a coat and some friends on the corner
Mother, don't worry. She's got a garden we're planting together
Mother, remember the night that the dog had her pups in the pantry?
Blood on the floor and the fleas on their paws,
And you cried 'til the morning.

So may the sunrise bring hope where it once was forgotten
Sons are like birds flying always over the mountain

"Valley Clouds"
(with Jesca Hoop)

"Valley Clouds"
(with Jesca Hoop)



Why don't we go slow below the Valley Clouds
Our edges worn round and sacred now
All in time, all promises were not the same
We left flowers in the field and our tears were plain

Bend to the wind
It'll baptize your skin until your music is tender
Tender as trees
For the truth we believed
It's the wind we remember

We were overcome
Spinning in the wheels
Hitting bottom in the wellspring mud
Crying to the cold until we felt the sun
Home was up a hill but our weary legs could run

When we closed our eyes
We could see the serpent
And the savior laying side by side
Heaven was a corner where we tried to hide
Our running would be long and our river would be wild

Feel this flag
Let's ring another freedom bell
Our backs were to the sound but its sermon held

All things wild
Draw cups until the water's cold
Our memories are Christ and our hearts are clothes

Bend to the wind it'll baptize our skin
Until our music is tender
Tender is trees for the tears when we leave
It's the wind we'll remember

We were overcome
Spinnin' in the wheels
In the bottom of the wellspring mud
Cryin' to the cold till we feel the sun
Home is up a hill where our weary legs will run

When we close our eyes
See the serpent and her favorite savior laying side by side
Every heaven only you and I could find
Our running would be long and our river will be wild

Bells come back
We'll name a star we know all night
What valley is our claim when our coin is sky

"Wade Across The Water"

"Wade Across The Water"


I saw you wade across the river
Winter coat across your shoulders
Callin' out, what did you say?
If I wade across the water
When I rise will you be there
Open-armed or turned the other way?

I saw you wade across the river
Handkerchief in your fingers
Just in case, well, just in case
If I lose to the water
Lose it all for you lover
You were all I wanted anyway

"Waitin' For A Superman"

"Waitin' For A Superman"


I asked you a question and I didn't need you to reply
Is it getting heavy?
But then I realize, is it getting heavy
Well, I thought it was already as heavy as can be

Is it overwhelming to use a crane to crush a fly?
It's a good time for Superman to lift the sun into the sky
'Cause it's getting heavy
Well, I thought it was already as heavy as can be

Tell everybody waiting for Superman
That they should try to hold on the best they can
He hasn't dropped them, forgot them or anything
It's just too heavy for a Superman to lift

Is it getting heavy?
Well, I thought it was already as heavy as can be

Tell everybody waiting for Superman
That they should try to hold on the best they can
He hasn't dropped them, forgot them or anything
It's just too heavy for a Superman to lift

"Walking Far From Home"

"Walking Far From Home"


I was walking far from home
Where the names were not burned along the wall
Saw a building, high as heaven
But the door was so small, door was so small

I saw rainclouds, little babies
And a bridge that had tumbled to the ground
I saw sinners making music
And I dreamt of that sound, dreamt of that sound

I was walking far from home
But I carried your letters all the while
I saw lovers in a window
Whisper want me like time, want me like time

I saw sickness bloom in fruit trees
I saw blood and a bit of it was mine
I saw children in a river
But their lips were still dry, lips were still dry

I was walking far from home
And I found your face mingled in the crowd
Saw a boat-full of believers
Sail off talking too loud, talking too loud

I saw sunlight on the water
Saw a bird fall like a hammer from the sky
An old woman on a speed train
She was closing her eyes, closing her eyes

I saw flowers on a hillside
And a millionaire pissing on the lawn
Saw a prisoner take a pistol
And say join me in song, join me in song

Saw a car crash in the country
Where the prayers run like weeds along the road
I saw strangers stealing kisses
Giving only their clothes, only their clothes

Saw a white dog chase it's tail
And a pair of hearts carved into a stone
I saw kindness and an angel
Crying "take me back home, take me back home"

Saw a highway, saw an ocean
I saw widows in the temple to the Lord
Naked dancers in the city
How they spoke for us all, spoke for us all

I saw loaded linen tables
And a motherless colt then it was gone
I saw hungry brothers waiting
With the radio on, radio on

I was walking far from home
Where the names were not burned along the wall
Saw a wet road form a circle
And it came like a call, came like a call from the Lord

"We Two Are A Moon"
(with Jesca Hoop)

"We Two Are A Moon"
(with Jesca Hoop)



This song is a love letter to toss into the fire
Wind comes through the window
Faces carve into the hearth

Find a soul and feel it
Hearts have hidden rooms
Sing with me to wrong chords
Music isn't safe

This love is a photograph of snow kept in a cloud
We don't look for failure but it's teaching us the world

And it's open kisses
Mercy among stones
Horses in the doorway running out of rain

And we all die of thirst
We put family first
The world can withhold so much beauty

This life is a river rock to turn under your tongue
Laughing rubs it smooth and crying turns it to a pearl
Promise me tomorrow
Fingers deep and green
This well's full of water
And we two are a moon

"Weary Memory"

"Weary Memory"


Found your mittens behind a box of pictures
You would wear them before I brewed the tea
That's one memory I can easily conjure
Weary memory I can always see
Found your rosary broken into pieces
Every night by the bed you'd kiss the beads
Those are moments that I can always relive
Weary memories I can always see
Found a photo of you when we were married
Leaning back on a broken willow tree
That's one memory that I choose to carry
Weary memory I can always see

"Welcome To Feeling"
(with Jesca Hoop)



Happy
Welcome to feeling
Calm comes
We're sleeping in the sun
Deep in the sun (deep in the)
Dark in the sun (dark in the)
Dark inside the sun (dark in the)
Deep in the sun (deep in the)
Dark inside of wonder
Full of song
Dark inside of wonder
Full of happiness

"White Tooth Man"

"White Tooth Man"


Said the plain clothes cop to the beauty queen
"I've seen nothing but a spoke in a wheel"
So she gave up her crown to a kid with a crutch
And they both felt cheated after closing the deal
And the white tooth man, I ran with him
Got all cut up from pissing out in the weeds
And a fight upstate with a broken blade
And a wife whose finger never wanted a ring

Said the plain clothes cop to the Indian chief
"I've made nothing but an honest mistake"
The postman cried while reading the mail
And we all got trampled in the Christmas parade
And the white tooth man who sold me a gun
A map of Canaan and a government bond
Said, "I love this town, but it ain't the same"
The ski mask ripped as he was putting it on

Said the plain clothes cop to the holy ghost
"I've heard nothing if it wasn't the wind"
And we all got sick on a strip club meal
While the statehouse was frying all the witches again
So the white tooth man with his kids in the car
And a wad of money that was already spent
Said, "I love my dog but she just ran away
She'll keep running like the world never ends"
