lyrics

A flash, a spark, a shooting star
I saw you in a fleeting light
The black of space, impending change
Remember who we were that night?
With my hands reaching out for hands
in the dark, feet covered in sand
on the rocky path to Echo Lake
"Let's stop and take a breath"
But you make your wish and leap
through a gap between skinny trees
and all at once I'm sober as I came

You say my name
and suddenly I'm sure of it
I am sustained
in a fleeting moment's permanence
You say my name
I feel it changing right in front of me
It's all the same,
It's all the same now anyway

But when I wake, that quiet space
before I know my name again
I'll meet you there with tangled hair
as tiny bits of light descent
When the sun shines soft and golden
and it's halfway behind the earth
I will whisper to my mother, singing
"Mom, I'm home again."
