lyrics

The bruise on my knee is almost gone
Honey's flown to Madison
Phyllis starts a watercolour
Gutters flood a spread umbrella
The burner's up and the flames is high
The water's gone, the pot is dry
But there's a basement full of wine
And nights to remember

Of a slow talk had up a sidewalk, taking its time
Walking up Chesapeake, our white house on the right

Next door they're throwing junk away
All the furniture out in the rain
They've finally put the old lady away
So I took her silverware
Her books and her kitchen mop
Her hangers and her pans and pots
The dresser where she kept her clothes
It looked as though she lived in alone

There's much to hear while our four ears are still young
If we shout it out, we'll have more years yet to come

Tonight the moon will turn around
All the way back behind the clouds
Folks will lower their telescopes
Drive their wives and kids back home
Their eyes will block with mud and milk
Their eyes inside with blindness filled
And the moon will hide & seek until
There's no one left to wonder why

The rug will soak, the screen will glare
He'll come and summer will be here
We'll kiss and cross the swamp
The boat will wait down at the bottom
The sun will set late in the day
The sun will take its face away
But my love, his face will always stay
Right beside mine
