notes:
tiger lily and greenleaf tea
can you hear me
in your trenchcoat
gathering butterfly wings
green and gold dust round your lips
hear the wind laughing
pocketful of brushes
painted birds
broken hearts
doctor can you heal me

lay you down in warm sand
melt you open
til your river meet the sea
blow dandelion skeleton to the sun
set them free

overheard someone say
careful what you throw away
know i can't hold on
don't want to let go
only a child
thinks dreaming makes it so


lay me down in warm sand
melt me open
til my river meet the sea
blow dandelion skeleton to the sun
set them free


is love real
gesture make it seem that way
but at ten thousand miles
whisper turn to echo
ripple fade

for now
hold me in your arms
like tomorrow will never come   
then
build a bonfire
to keep warm
til love sails round again
