Song For Lisa  (1994)


It took five million years to raise you

but it's been worth it, a seed well sown

your roots reached around the world

then pulled you home

You count memories that may warm you

ah, but you need these miles to learn

the truth of just how deep the home fire burns


Take care of you, you have so much to give

for you understand we take more than we need

and take care of her, still reaching from the sea

innocent and wild, let her breathe, let her breathe


You look out on the stars we never see

our infinities won't touch

still tonight we blew our kisses to the moon

Is it only imagination, as he takes each one and vows

he will sail away and sprinkle them on your horizon soon


Take care of you....
