about

Notes: This song is for my wife who has just endured a great ordeal. She is a person that fate has disproportionately chosen to challenge, and she has bested every test of will thrown in her direction. What's more, she does so with grace. Through all of life's trials, she seems to think primarily of others and what she can do to help them. I admire her so much.

lyrics

Go out on the block tonight
Get up on your feet if they're trying to go
I won't try to tell you where
There's a million things you know that I can't know

And I see that you're tired, dear
I feel silly the second I point that out
You walk right through the heart of war
Then you ask me what I dream about

I don't know where the current goes
In the quiet I think of the way you've found
Are you a stream in the forest, dear?
Or a raft on the ocean getting tossed around?

And I know nothing's funny here
Still you laugh anyway because it's got to get out
Looking deep into the ages
As you tell me what you dream about
