lyrics

Circumstance
Will you stay with me awhile?
Least till I catch my breath
Though we’re older all the while
Life changes less and less
Thought is altered by love
As food is sweetened by drink
Wear my days down to a wire
That trips me when I think
That I’m still waiting to be combined
With circumstance
Will you stand with me awhile?
Despite what you may think
There’s no more safety in love
Than at its unsteady brink
Thought is altered by time
As hope is tempered by faith
Which unwinds like desire
A lovely, fragile skein
And I’m not waiting to be combined
With circumstance
