In my street so far
Fence flowers are
Blaring your name in the present tense
Yellow, yellow wide
Yellow wide as a goodbye kiss
And stride after stride, I

I don't speak magpie
But I know they sing for you
The sky is stretched defiant blue and I hum
Thank you

In my street so far
The wire sparrow are
Tapping out our days in rosy hues
Rows and rows of blooms
I'd cut them loose, but how to choose
And let all the light run from their stems?

I don't speak magpie
But I know they sing for you
The sky is stretched defiant blue and I hum
Thank you

I am tired, I think I fell
And I was lifted
As a careful stitcher pikes the linen
And gives rise to thread
So to be the garment
So set soft to rest
Along you and along
You kissed my cheek awake again

In my street so far
Fence flowers are
Blaring your name in the present tense
Yellow, yellow wide
Yellow wide as a goodbye kiss
And stride after stride, I

I don't speak magpie
But I know they sing for you
The sky is stretched defiant blue and I hum
Thank you
