Wren in the Rain

lyrics

Summer men with autumn names
Say spring will cure what winter maims
It’s what the decomposed remains suggest

An autumn man with summer’s face
Will come to take his father’s place
And there but for the god of grace I guess

Goes a wren in the rain, a wren in the rain
Again and again like a wren in the rain

You build your home inside a fish
Close your eyes and make a wish
Imagine all the visions you will see

You take a stick, you take a twig
And hope will bloom from every sprig
Maybe someday you’ll take the whole tree

Like a wren in the rain, a wren in the rain
Again and again like a wren in the rain

No one’s alone the way we’re alone
No one’s afraid the way we’re afraid

You sense the spring is coming soon
You chart the phases of the moon
You send up your weather balloon and pray

They say this winter can’t last long
Reverberating like a gong
You’ve fluffed up all your feathers wrong today

Like a wren in the rain, a wren in the rain
Again and again like a wren in the rain
