about

For Ryan and Katie
Love Forever and ever and ever

lyrics

They ran through the dark
from their village ablaze
Big Sky carried the flame
Morning Wind carried what
little they'd saved:
some utopia seeds
for a happier day

Sky whispered a joke
but it clung to his beard
alongside the moonlight and snow
but Wind combed it free
stretched it effortlessly
over both of their shoulders
for warmth while they sleep
saying:

Every night
I will be here
right next to you

don't fear the abyss
just give me a kiss
under the moon
we'll make it through the night

They dreamed up the world
they'd build when they were safe
a rough sketch of a malnourished myth

a moat full of sap
for their pinecone keep
with snow gardens, snow orchards
snow valleys full of sheep

The drums of the beast
growled and snapped
at their feet
til they came to the river of life
across lay the sun
who could slay their abyss
but Big Sky don't swim
so he gave Wind a kiss
saying:

Every day
I will be here
waiting for you

you bring me the sun
make the world green
I will be blue
wide and true

I love you
and I know you know I do

I love you
and my love is as true
as the big sky is blue
