lyrics

We saved one from our wheel well
Another from our window’s well
And I’m not feeling too well

See I’ve grown up with them
Their midnight chorus never ends
I buried the first outside my window
And his tombstone scribbled and worn from rain
A memory wrought in ferns and flame
And my tears when I was five years old

You’ll hear them when humidity hits
And rain floods the marsh and sits
Buzzing at the bottom of the hill
Just shed your shoes and meet me there
At the splintered bench in the evening air
Heavy with love and anxious words

We saved one from our wheel well
Another from our window’s well
And now I know all is well

They’ll be gone when the frost falls
And autumn freezes every thaw and truth is lost in the wind
I think that I’ve what it takes
To extend the summer’s stake
In hushing the worry we look after
Just to leave when robins return
And tree frogs roll from winters burn
To canopies of pine and homes of myrtle

I’ve missed you for ten years
A distance closed in irrational fear
Tumbled in the stream gin clear

We found a frog in our wheel well
Another in our window’s well
And now I know all is well
