Lyrics

Spark

There's a spark in her eye.
Tease out the best of these possibilities.
There's a spark in her eye.
Fields are aflame with the light of the morning
Grandfather's clock strikes a warning:
Keep your eye on the storm.

Rumbling fills her ears.
Tease out the best of these possibilities.
Rumbling fills her ears.
The loud of the crash brings sweet relief,
peace from the voices who, in all of their mischief,
can hardly compete.

Inviting you in, this time, this one time ... stay.

The wind draws her into the open.
Tease out the best of these possibilities.
It draws her into the open.
She pulls tight her shawl, the air tugs her dress,
Invisible hands rock her east and west,
A balancing feat.

Her eyes become the rain.
Tease out the best of these possibilities
Her eyes shower with rain.
But the fog has lifted the weight of the morning.
Droplets fall like a poor man's offering,
outrunning her tears.

Inviting you in, this time, this one time ... stay.
