When February thaws before its time I Hear spring peepers in far off woods Bees come out in search of nectar And the false spring withholds its goods Dead leaves turn cartwheels in barren fields Gray grass bends in the breeze Sun flirts behind the clouds But the sun has always been a tease Blackthorne Winter go back where you came from some southern stream in the northern skies Blackthorne Winter bite your tongue Don’t tell me no more lies I’ve seen summers like this full of promise Gold tongued whispers never last Snow returns, heavy and jaded A melancholy spirit from the past Saint Teresa, Saint John In the velvet season of fickle length Help me remember in the whippoorwill winter This brief imitation of strength

Only One 03:34
Between two rivers flooded by ideas of right and wrong There’s a meadow where we met and we laid down our heavy souls Beside the garden with overwhelming possibilities There’s a stone path where we met and threw aside our jealousy I thought I was the only one Until I saw your face You didn’t ask for anything I knew that I’d be safe with you Beneath the night sky clouded by suspicion and regret There’s a street light where we met and traded hearts that have be spent I thought I was the only one Until I saw your face You didn’t ask for anything I knew that I’d be safe with you You can have my heart You can have my soul You can have my voice and I will still be whole

Each day I tend the flame, hey hey A candle in your name It bears my hopes and pain Until it drowns in fire There’s set before you , hey hey Reach out your hand to choose It will be given you Water or fire Oh it burns, hey hey But it won’t burn down The world it turns But it won’t turn around May my heart obey, hey hey Make corrections There’s guilt he takes away And guilt I’ve been protecting Friend of God, hey hey Won’t you pray for me Friend of God, hey hey I’m on my knees We cannot taste your blood, hey Shed by fire of love As we draw near to you Clothe us in fire You consume our soul, hey hey Anoint our wounds with oil And let your charity Be our one desire Friend of God, hey hey Won’t you pray for me Friend of God, hey hey I’m on my knees Oh it burns, hey hey But it won’t burn down The world it turns But it won’t turn around

We were made to be drawn to the warmth and the light So how could we have known we were playing with fire With the smoke in your voice and the light in your eyes I loved you at first sight, I loved you at first sight We burned it at both ends We burned it at both ends How little we knew before we began Oh, we burned it at both ends When we first sensed the danger we should have run off But I am the flame and you are the moth I am the powder and you are the spark And the heart wants what it wants, the heart wants what it wants Ashes, ashes, ashes we all fall Ashes, ashes, ashes for your heart We burned it at both ends We burned it at both ends If we only knew, we'd do it again Oh, we burned it at both ends
