it’s a year,
it’s a second,
it’s a minute,
it’s an hour,
it’s a day

it’s the push of a button,
it’s as certain
as a dog upon a chain

it’s the cool of the river
it’s the promise
of the coming rain

It’s as light as a feather
it’s the weather
it’s the ticking of a bomb

it’s as cruel as a whisper
it’s as tender
as a blister on your thumb

it is far in the distance
and as present
as a smoking gun

look at the sky fall open
moving into something new

look at the sky fall open
everything that is is true

and this is the moment come
and this is the moment gone

it’s a sigh in the temple
it’s a bluebell
it’s the swinging of a gate

it is soft as a shadow
it’s a garden
it’s a foot upon a rake

it’s the bite of a lemon
it’s the feeling that you’re wide awake

look at the sky fall open
moving into something new

look at the sky fall open
everything that is is true

and this is the moment come
and this is the moment come
and this is the moment come

and this is the moment gone

from the steam of the coffee
to the bottle from the offi is a day

from the bob of the bobbin
to the lid upon the coffin it’s the way

you can fight with the river
but remember to
enjoy your stay…
