Everywhere I’ve Been Lyrics
It was the perfect time for what it was, however unforseen
I should ask and hope for no more although your everywhere I’ve been
Although I hear you in the names of streets and smell you in the fire
Although a nursery rhyme will silence me lest I should start to cry
For the memory of you and I drifting, rowing, out of time
Although I feel you in these wooden oars and hear you in the beaver’s tail
Although the salmon in this iron skillet turns my hands to yours
Or though the simple taste of ale brings me with you to the ocean shore
The woods smell like your beard and the frogs sound like our river
Why do my friends talk of John Muir when beofre they didn’t ever?
I suppose it’s good you’re still with me and haven’t disappeared
What are you doing in every song and in the stars at night?
How’d you find your way into that couple’s arms holding each other tight?
I need to thank you for our time and how you changed me for the better
And I will hold my new self here as you linger in my mind
Although you’re everywhere I been …
