lyrics

This old boat seeks wind and savors dreams / Chimes near the stove harbor songs of Asian seas / I’m going sailing / This old car smells of cedar, rose, and dust / Cooper’s feather facing west for gold or bust / Radio playing / What is the treasure? What is the cost? / How does the fruit mix with the salt of loss? / This old bike knows the quiet winds of night / Harvesting promise through zigzags in fractured light / Lovers are breathing / These weathered feet want a maple tree in fall / Tonic for the weight of the pull when visions call / I’m going dreaming / We’re going dreaming / What is the treasure? What is the cost? / How does the fruit mix with the salt of loss?
