lyrics

Forever Changed
©2014 Frank Gayer Martin

You sing like a soaring bird
On a north wind, blue sky
Takes a pure heart to sing that free
I have to leave my feet to sing that high

And voices reach beyond words
And flesh and blood to do more contain
Our souls are thus entwined
And I will never be the same
I’m forever changed

Your fingers are ballet
They leap and skip on string and fret
Your heart does guide them true and strong
To places undiscovered yet

And I know the price dancers pay
Solitude and ache and pain
I’ve shared your life and art
And I will never be the same
I’m forever changed

You don’t talk much
My night drive companion
You whistle low and drum the dash
To Scofield and Sheridan

And all the things you never say
Add weight to what remains
Our brother of miles and stage
And I will never be the same
I’m forever changed

You turn a silver wrench
Between beats and rests
A busted-up discarded bike
Rebuilt with mindfulness

Don’t improve yourself too much
We love the jester with no shame
And laughing at ourselves
And I will never be the same
I’m forever changed

You asked me how I felt
My heart fit to burst
And when I lied and said okay
You knew where it hurt

And should we both act our age
Yours and mine might be the same
Somewhere on the broken path
And I will never be the same
I’m forever changed

A moment comes and goes
Like a crow in the snow
Wings beat, the crow is gone

And I will never be the same
I’m forever changed
