Lucky Lee

 

I can’t keep my mind from turning

In this pale and lonesome room

Every day collapsed together

Skips along the waning moon

 

Where I find the shining face of Lucky Lee

Who sits among the roses and the reeds

Who has seen the world on fire and still believes

 

There is beauty in every notion

Be it kind or unkind

And we are mere survivors

On the ocean of goodbyes

 

It's the castaways that find a slight reprieve

The quiet moments when once the storm released

Drapes gently down upon Lucky Lee

 

I’ll hold on to this day for every day

            I’ll string this sigh across all noise

I’ll bear this belief like none has bore

I’ll hold on to this day for every day

              

For Lucky Lee

Amongst the shadows,

The shelters and the leaves.

Amongst the squalor                     

And the swelter and

The fates the sing together

 And the hands that come together over me

and Lucky Lee

 

I know these fingers fondly

I have worn them like a crown

And I basked in the reunion

When the end was coming down

 

In the shards of glass the universe is born

The broken dreams are swallowed up by vine

And the lights between, I keep them here with mine

 

I would long for you, my darling

Buried 10 ft underground

I love to watch your light expanding

When the spring cometh around

 

Where I find the shining face of Lucky Lee

Who sits among the roses and the reeds

Who has seen the world on fire and still believes
