Elephant Revival – Petals

Lyrics

Hello You Who
Hello you who moves with me in a dance

Hello you who moves me like the sea

Hello you who shows me what our fears are made of

Who love me Love loves me just to be


I’ll hold you, hold me closely

All that I can give you know I want to

All I have to offer it’s all for you

I’ll hold you, hold me closely


Goodbye to those starless skies, empty eyes, sorrow cries,

“no not goodbye”

Goodbye to the dawning of the star inside our turning around

Your sunshine eyes

I love you Love love you just to be

Peace Tonight
She lives above the motor line

Staring out those deep brown pearly eyes

She’ll cast your spell, she’ll hold you well

You remember well, you remember well,

you remember well.
She calls the circle, she sets the tone.

She lights the candles that burn on.


Staring out into the sun

She says what new day has come

Oh what a thing to have a star

A wishing well, I wish you well, I wish you well.


She thanks the sky, and she walks the earth.

Her tears that fall are beautiful.

She says my people, she says my tribe,

all good lovers out there, peace tonight, peace tonight.



Petals
Changes will continue but I’ll never give in to

The woman that you’ve assumed me to be

Thought that I had seen

Could feel me beneath you

Beneath a distant longing..

To arrive


There’ll be no more waiting

No sorrowful blaming

I’m sitting right where I’ve wanted to be

I am and I am not

These petals pressed into

These pages unnumbered

I am and I am not

But then I remember

And when I remember

It seems that I become more of what I remember

Which is not necessarily insanely related

Or jaded or tainted by bleak memory
In fact I’m enjoying

The lifting of morning

These petals intended for giving release

On and On
Chisel the stone, inward there you go.

Pretty soon you’ll learn there’s nowhere else to go or turn.

The halls, the mirrors, the chains, the fears

And breath you’ll hold.

But the crowning queen, well she’s spinning like the world.

And she goes on and on, she goes.


The teller of tales of stories long forgot,

He’s still speaking in tongues and he’s rolling in the plot.

With a wheel that spins, without, within a heart of fire.

With your breath upon the embers as the flames grow higher.

And he goes on and on, he goes.
The truth can die ever so young

Reborn upon the beds,

Of the dying tongue so many have sworn,

For all truths to be said.

Night it falls upon desire where forgotten dreams.

In our eternal flames and fire our bodies wax and wane.

And it goes on and on, it goes.

Raindrops
Raindrops on the rooftops he said

Just stop and listen

Constant as the earth quakes

As the day breaks

Stop and listen
Careful is the movement

Light a candle in the basement

But there's sunlight

On up the stairs

I'll go up there just to see it
Raindrops on the rooftops he said

Just stop and listen

Constant as the earth quakes

As the day breaks

Stop and listen

Season Song

I opened a book and found a four leaf clover.

Turned the page and there was October.

As I stared into Autumn’s eyes, I saw a death that never dies.

And I watched as the leaves were turning,

Falling into the wind and swirling.

How we break, we mend, we tremble.

And that’s how I found November.

And we spin, another day, another dawn.

Another year, another song.


Into winter we surrender.  

Deep into it’s splendor.

In mirth we warm our bones, we dream these seeds we’ll sow.

Praise the birth of a star, for January is not too far.

A saviour like the sun it shine, resurrecting one more time.
And we spin, another day, another dawn.

Another year, another song.


Oh the joys now I remember.

I think i’ll tell you in a letter,

Of all the love in a budding rose.

How flowers come and flowers go.

And to the drunkards that dance on tables,

One fell off right into April.

To the hour of a child’s birth.

To the evening of all her searching.


And we spin, another day, another dawn.

Another year, another song.




Furthest Shore

(a later part of the Curragh story from the perspective of the once lost child as a grown man)


I've seen the furthest of the shore

I felt the deepest of the sea

Carried away that fateful day

My mother calling after me

Heard my mother calling after me
The rope released when lightning shone

From all that I had ever known

Out on the waters one alone

Oh how the waters they had grown

Oh how the waters they had grown
The night it faded into day

The sky and sea seemed without end

For loving mother I did pray

I heard her strength inside the wind

I heard her strength inside the wind

And with the wind there came a ship

Like nothing I had ever seen

'Cept for the lady carved on the bow

Like my mother so she seemed

And the faces they were many

Smooth and dark with eyes that showed

They'd take me in and care for me

And raise me as though I's their own

They raised me as though I's their own

I've heard the furthest of the shore

I've felt the deepest of the sea

Seems everywhere I go is there

The songs my mother sang to me


"deeper than the sea"

Sea Monster
I’m going out over the sea

I’ve got a boat, I’ve got a dream

I trim the sails with my own hands

leave all my thought back on the land


I’m going out over the sea

I won’t be back until I’m free


I hear a voice, a siren’s review

I hear it calling out of the blue

a song of a strange unbearable thing

it grows in the water, it goes unseen


I’m going out over the sea

hearing the song I’ve come to see


What is this monster in the gyre

all that’s thrown over the side

and I want to know…
How we live in a world that provides and expires

how we grow, come to know our hearts desire


I’m going out over the sea

all I have heard, all I have seen

we are all out, out in a dream

we are a boat, we are the sea


After all the rise and fall is all that still remains


When I Fall
When I fall, Lord let me fall

When I rise, see you standing there


A light beyond the dark

A love that is unbound

A veil that shields our eyes

As the sun goes down


When I fall, Lord let me fall

When I rise, see you standing there


We start, where we find ourselves

In heartbreak, doubt and pain

It's here, within these walls

That we transcend and begin again


When I fall, Lord let me fall

When I rise, see you standing there


When I fall, Lord let me fall
Home in Your Heart

Falling down

Spin me ‘round

No one said this would be easy now,

but you’ve gotta keep moving somehow.

Drifting ‘round

Cold river bound

Someone said to me one day

“head on down to the waters and stay a while”


Go down to the soul of the river

Go where love found you there

Feel deep down them goosebumps and shivers

Go where the mouth of the river runs wide


And don’t push that river

Let the river move you along

Home in your heart and there’s heart in your home

Don’t force nothing, something will come around

Light as a feather when you’re homeward bound
You said it’s sown from the smoke heavy roads

You dance along, all your words turn to prose,

but you’re not bound, no shameful regret

You set your sails and move full speed ahead


Don’t push that river

Let the river move you along

Home in your heart and there’s heart in your home

Don’t force nothing, something will come around

Light as a feather when you’re homeward bound

Light as a feather when you’re home


Falling down

Spin me ‘round

No one said this would be easy now

but you’ve gotta keep moving somehow.


Don’t push that river

Let the river move you along

Home in your heart and there’s heart in your home

Don’t force nothing, something will come around

Light as a feather when you’re homeward bound

Light as a feather when you’re home



Close as Can Be
Is it true?

Heard a cry

You've gone away

Saying now it's plain to see

Through you
Like the shadowy photograph

Or stars in the morning

They say you've gone away
But I feel you near

You're lifting the leaves

Saying to me

We'll be close as can be

Now that you know

However that goes

Do you still lie

Down with denial

For the nearness of you not to be

That's hard to see

If you've gone away

Where've you gone to?


Cause I feel you're near

For now


Somehow

And I hear your ghost

It's calling me out

From all of my doubts

Saying to me

Someday that we



Will be close as can be
