lyrics

raven watching from the tree
bring your weathered song to me
i haven’t any time to sleep
i haven’t any time to
call upon the name in vain
and wish that i was home again
summer’s months how they do weep
summer’s months are warm and weak

oh i once was young and sweet
kissing you between the sheets
listening to the rain that beat
each stone in the cemetery
now we stand out on the water
now we are the son and daughter
of a long awaited storm
of a chance to be reborn

raven watching from the tree
bring your weathered song to me
i haven’t any time to sleep
i haven’t any time to
talk that old man winter down
steal his thick and thorny crown
make your home inside my hands
you know he spares no creature from his wrath


oh take me home i’ve been out here so very long
and i’ve been doubting you and i feel ashamed
oh take the wind remove this thin and fearful skin
and make me whole holy and unafraid
