  1. The Bells

From the recording WE ARE A GHOST NOW, YOU & I

Lyrics

One day there’ll be a note that I can’t sing for you.
One day there’ll be a bed where you won’t lay.
One day there’ll be a letter I can’t send and you won't
Read it anyway.

One day you will be ashes on a mantelpiece.
One day they’ll put my body in the ground.
They say there is a river we all cross, the other side
I bet is where we drown. And you said…
“Me, Oh My.
We’re all dying.”
~~~
One day there was a pigeon near my work.
A crow had picked the eyeballs from its face
And from its silver chin its calendar went leaking.
Propped up on a gutter in the rain.

Now I’ve got people trying to shoot my name
Saying that my sex is something wrong
And I am stunned to silence by the contradiction.
I’m nothing less than overcome. And you said…
“Me, Oh My.
We’re all dying.”
~~~
Now the winter
Is a menace
And the father is a mess
And the pigeon
Was a mercy kill
Once the mother moved her nest
To a safe place;
To higher ground.
I’m reminded of my mother crying
"Light it up! I wanna hear the bells!!"
“Me, Oh My.
We’re all dying.”
