The deer don't lie I have watched them in the morning light Dappled neath the beech and ash and maple Crossing over a river a swollen with the remnants of a long last winter night They lift their heads up To a cloudless sky To say a storm is coming in Though it's still miles and miles and miles from here You've got to trust your intuition Just to stay alive. I see blue On the horizon I fear not my undoing. On the horizon I fear not my undoing. When the woods get quiet, It is not silent. Subtle is the choir of the mystic- The songs of the living and dying. I did not make my way out to this mountain- howling, begging for a sign- For I knew I would not find it With the eyes of a skeptic. No, not with the eyes of a skeptic Will I see blue on the horizon and fear not my undoing. On the horizon I fear not my undoing.

When the last of the sun meets the juniper It colors the song of the meadowlark How many miles have your ready wings flown And still love is as lost as you've ever known And still love is as lost as you've ever known Sweet as the sage and the juniper To witness the song of the meadowlark How many miles have I wandered among them Still love is as lost as i've ever gone. Still love is as lost as i've ever gone.

Blue green damp earth I am alright to be just a small part of the beauty in the world When the nine-mile mountain hums I need no tending I need no tending but for the flowers to bloom

Timeless, unrefined Night falls heavy The valley is wide All-knowing Long, chained shadows Unbroken by silvery light- I'm holding on tight When that cold wind blows. You can take my stories And all the warmth I've known, But I won't be lonely under this moon.

High is the canyon we climb Do the clouds in the sky ever look down? Why am I so terrified? Do the clouds in the sky ever look down? I'm trying just to sleep through the night Do the clouds in the sky ever come down?

I stand where the light can hit me. Where the light can lift me up. Cause I know that when the night comes, With it’s deepest, darkest, lonesome Blue I’ll think of you. In my old bandana, You wore it all the time. And I left it in your open hands When I left our love behind. It was blue, Blue as time. I loved you more than I have ever loved a home. It really wasn’t you, babe, I just had to walk alone. The blue of distance is calling me on. Calling me on. Will you stand where the light can hit you? Where the light can lift you up? So I know that, when the night comes, With it’s deepest darkest lonesome Blue, You’ll be seeing it too. It was that blue of distance That carried me on. Carried me on.
