lyrics

columbus

if i am a flower
and i may be a flower
i’ve been in bloom only once
and it was with you

if i am a loon
and i may be a loon
i sang to the moon only once
and the moon was you

if i am a fire
and i may be a fire
i have been stoked only once
and it was by you

if i am a baby
and i may be a baby
i have been rocked only once
and it was by you

There is no carnival,
There’s lost, and there is home,
And when the art falls apart,
Things stand singular as stones.

if i’m a mosquito
and i may be a mosquito
i have drawn blood only once
and the blood was you

if i am an otter
and i may be an otter
i swam in the water only once
and the water was you

if i am a knoll
and i may be a knoll
i have been grassy only once
and the grass was you

if i’m a machine
and i may be a machine
i have been oiled only once
and it was by you

Remember in the forest,
Where all is wordless and porous,
And the water finds the seed,
And you do get what you need,
Your windy wild spirit is
cut out for this time,
Go Columbus!
Go See It!
just don’t lose your mind and
please! don’t forget me!
please! don’t forget me
when you’re fine—
you will be fine
