1. The Whisper

From the recording The Whisper


the whisper was hardly heard
but undoubtedly spoken
the disparate parts converged
like curtains drawn open

preparin' to ride this wave out to sea
watch as the current takes ahold of me

yesterday sings a familiar tune
fading out with the crescent moon
time passes fast and slow and steady
soon i'll be knowing where i'm heading

the ice did grow thick and cold
over my compass
but brightness did welcome me
into all that i wanted

directionless i did stay patiently
as the hourglass turned the page
ahead of me

its a lonely chase
with nothing but stars to lead your way
but i'm gonna swing
for the horizon ahead of me
