1. Stars


Across valleys folding, across waters frozen
across the time between my dawn and your setting sun
these are stories blowin’, these words tender showin’
how can I touch the shape of wing-binding’s falling ‘way
oh tongue, set you free, and oh mind let it be
oh land, teach me how to lay in the storming wind
across hearts aching, across skies a-breaking
across the time between our suns

I’m lost in your stars
by the light of the dark moon
just be as you are, just do as you do
by grace and devotion
by lettin go, lettin go overything
by breath as it takes you
by the light of the dark moon
I’m lost in your stars

Two-toned, moment wide, breathing, stay with it
I aim for the place between all longing and letting be
speaking honeywine, making wishes star-side
these are the arrows in the battle of becoming
make me a warrior hummingbird, disarming
you be a compass to guide this flight
take me surrendered, fill me to spilling over
the roots of this endless sky

I’m lost in your stars…
