about

This is a song about making everyday occurrences magical to make life a meaningful trip. About finding one's place in the family of things. It may even be the way that I conjured my wife to appear in my life.

lyrics

It's a yearning for a better sense of place.
Miles of open road, and the sunlight on your face.
It's a burning for a wisdom I might yet
make vibrant in my life so my bones will not forget

To make this step a pilgrimage
and these words a holy bridge

to a shining string of moments I will hold
gently in my hands that lead me to new worlds
of amazement and the rings around the moon
and the way your summer smile somehow fills the entire room

And pulls me into pilgrimage
your eyes and mine a holy bridge.

It just smells right, this mingling of ours,
has the flickering of flame and the constancy of stars,
constellating, each finding their own place,
sending light out, 'cross the emptiness of space

And guiding those on pilgrimage,
each dancing across their own bridge

Shattered fragments spiral, spinning off in space,
'til each fragment finds its place, again and

leaves behind things, and looks past them to what's true.
Pull my heartstrings, like the birds and flowers do
by my true name, and the music of the spheres
who announce how I belong, and sing away those fears

Of stepping into pilgrimage,
and dancing across my own bridge.
Pulls me into pilgrimage,
these eyes, those words, this holy bridge!

Dah duh dah duh dah da duh, etc
