lyrics

The night grew dark as the moon she rose
The frogs sang symphonies
I held your hand as a tune from the band
of crickets put a skip in the step of our feet
Put a skip in the step of our feet

We could see them stars in the black of the pond
Heaven's mirror shines back at her
I could cast me a line and catch you a fine
Planet when you grow tired of this earth
A shooting star or a universe

When I can't find the words
And I'm just making sound
Will you reach for my hand
Lift me up from the ground
When I'm all on my own will stand by my side
In a room full of strangers with no where to hide
When I'm scared of the darkness
Will you carry me into the light

The coyotes cry on a September night
As we howled at the harvest moon
Our feet on the path that our ancestors had
Travelled as well with the soles of their shoes
Living life just the best that they knew

When I can't find the words
And I'm just making sound
Will you reach for my hand
Lift me up from the ground
When I'm all on my own will stand by my side
In a room full of strangers with no where to hide
When I'm scared of the darkness
Will you carry me into the light

The years slip on by like a roller coaster ride
With our hands in the air or holding on tight
Time is a dollar you never get back
The past is a young man having a laugh

An owl on a post calling out “don't come close”
With a stare that burned holes in me
We sat on the ground, listening close to the sounds
And the wind in the leaves of the trees
Life you're too much for me

When I can't find the words
And I'm just making sound
Will you reach for my hand
Lift me up from the ground
When I'm all on my own will stand by my side
In a room full of strangers with no where to hide
When I'm scared of the darkness
Will you carry me into the light
When this world stops it's spinning
We will dance in another life
