lyrics

Tell me a story of what is to come
Tell me a story of what has been
Tell me how things come to an end
Tell me how things come to be
Gather ‘round then and listen well;
Come and hear the story
Of the Dancer, Her colours, the great bowl of tea
And the field, a field of dream

The Dancer, looking into her own eye,
Saw there was a circle
From her iris these colors she spied:
Red, orange, yellow, green, blue, purple
Round and round, the colors spun out
In a widening tapestry
At the edges of which the colors merged
Into a great bowl of tea

The Dancer, swimming out into the tea,
Left the colors all in a muddle
Stepped out of the bowl, looked up at the stars
Dripping a grey-brown puddle
As the puddle dried, bright grasses to sprout
From this field grew all things
To leap to life, to whisper, to shout
In the field, a field of Dream

And so we too walked onto the field
Where all things sprout up and decay
Here we’ve lived, loved, laughed and cried
Time will come, we too here will lay
I remember her story like wisps of wind
Whispered through the reeds
As time wrapped around my bones
Like a stone by the stream

Ah — making kisses out of starlight, scattering them to the wind
Gathering windswept kisses into gumdrops,
Suck on the stones, spit them out again

I stood within a veil of tears
Crying for how things must be
I awoke renewed by the stars so near
And the rush of the blood pulsing through me
I saw it all as a fleeting game
She came, she left, again she came
Spun ‘round the seasons
A dancer of Joy and of pain

Ah — making kisses out of starlight, scattering them to the waves
Collecting waveworn kisses into sweetmeats
Savor the flavors of the day
