  1. Fool's Gift

Lyrics


Burn fall away as a leaf into the sound – turn fall away as a note into the ground – burn fall away as it's roaring all around – the lion will play with the turning of the dawn… "But don't be made a fool of me, there's time enough for everyone," they whispered it as jokery, but took it as a wisdom song – and I did not quite know them, though they said they were the friendly ones, and I couldn't place their faces, but I saw them just the same… "Where do you come from?" I called with all my might, and turned, falling 'way all the blinders to my sight – they met me halfway and they took me in their arms saying, "don't be afraid, we've come to take you just this far…" And don't be made a fool of me, there's time enough to go around, they whisper it so suddenly, but give it as it goes along – and I do not quite know them, though I see they are the friendly ones, and I cannot place their faces, but I hear them just the same… burn fall away as a note into the ground – burn fall away as a leaf into the sound – burn fall away as it's roaring all around – "Where do you come from and can I come with you?" The roar breaks the day and the questions come in two's – do the bidding out if the bidding you can sift – and don't be giving up if you've got giving as your gift… but don't be made a fool of me, there's time enough to go around, they whisper it so suddenly, but give it as it goes along – and I do not quite know them, though I see they are the friendly ones, and I cannot place their faces, and I hear them just the same…
