lyrics

i feel an abiding sense of calm out by the lakeside of bahir dar
i traveled very far to get to these shores
there’s something to this quality of light that streams through the treetops and catches fire
i’d be a liar with the future foretold

but you can’t make this up
mistakenly taken for a stranger by a lover
you gave me quite enough
to draw upon later after all of this is over

remember when you opened up to him love is to fight the lion he said
music is everywhere he said
that even as the trees move, even as the waters move you
you just keep on walking and walking he said

that you can’t make this up
mistakenly taken for a stranger by a lover
you gave me quite enough
to draw upon later after all of this is over

i know some disturbance will come my way sure as the moonlight pulls the waves
across the surface of the lake
but far below where sound of mind dares not go the aqueous masters fast and pray
waiting for the day when i come home

when i come home, leave the lights on
you must wake up but if you please, could you make the bed
i feel so tired in my body
but my heart and my soul want to know what lies ahead

but you can’t make this up
mistakenly taken for a stranger by a lover
you gave me quite enough
to draw upon later after all of this is over
