about

written one morning on a cliff by a cabin in Port Townsend, WA, looking out over the northern waters towards Vancouver, CA

lyrics

Put this whole beach into an hourglass
Stick it on a mountain high
Turn it upside down so I can watch
Watch my whole life flow by

Take all the loquats in the world
Stick ‘em in a silver jar
We’ll have tea and toast and jam
until the mystics tell us
tell us why we are
and you know I’m going to ask
‘cause I want to know

How long these dreams will come to me
How long these dreams will come to me
come to me
yeah come to me
come to me

And when night seeps through the dusty panes
Of this cabin by the shore
I know these dreams will come to me
Yeah, come to me once more

Take all the candles that have ever burned
light ‘em up here beside you and me
we can hold hands and we can turn
turn our voices to the sea
and you know I’m going to ask
‘cause I want to know

How long these dreams will come to me
How long these dreams will come to me
come to me
yeah come to me
come to me

And when night seeps through the dusty panes
Of this cabin by the shore
I know these dreams will come to me
Yeah, come to me once more
come to me once more
come to me once more
