Season Song

Season Song

music and lyrics by Rick Mealey

 

A summer framed with thunder

the flashes down the country

the blue that split the charcoal

and lightened all the sea

the herald of the solstice

the rain that fell around us

and after how I wanted you

and how you wanted me

 

we began by beginning, reliving

raced and dove for cover

how alike we felt, how near we felt

warming one another as the rain fell

pure white light that shredded grey

we sealed the sky with just a kiss

I remember—I am remembering

the swelling of our souls

were we ever more alive?

don’t cling to me

soon the day may come when I may leave you

don’t worship me

please don’t make me something I can’t live up to

oh walk with me

be here now, forget about your love that died

be real to me

open up your heart and let me live inside for a while

 

I am not falling—I am not

I am walking headlong into a cloud

going nowhere but going somewhere

we at our side silent and aloud

you are everywhere and all that I can see now

every moment an unfolding

and everything that matters now, it matters now

and in the next step ahead

I awaken—I awake again

it matters where we go

as it matters that we said “Hey, I love you”

were we ever more alive?

 

don’t cling to me

soon the day may come when I will leave you

don’t worship me

please don’t make me something I can’t live up to

oh walk with me

be here now, forget about your love that died

be real to me

open up your heart and let me live inside—

 

you see what we are—I see what we can be

 

we fit together like spaces touching

we are matter as we matter to each other

we belong and we belong together

falling into place in places ablaze with autumn

the final heat of summer’s glow

the scent of autumn’s final roses

rain again gives way to thunder

as we give ground to one another

willing ground to one another

willing life to one another

 

the soft caress of your voice

in a windy day in winter

the silk caress of skin by stone hearth firelight

we lean near now we glow in amber

as we will lean near then

within the longer night time

or in a get lost walk approaching spring

or a get wet walk into an ocean gale

I remember—I am imagining

the swelling of our souls

expands to fill the space

the space between the stars

are we ever more alive?

 

I am apart from you—but you are part of me

if I am not with you I’ll be there soon

I will be there soon—I will be there soon

keep it alive

 

your eyes mostly closed

and still you see it all, see it all, see it all..

do you ever see the futures twining

and tangled willfully around each other

horizons pulling all that matter

and all that matters back to earth

all that matters back to earth

everything about our matter

everything about our sight

everything about our dreams

everything about our love

 

horizons pulling all that matters

all this matter, all this matter

changing and unchanging save for weather

the sky beyond the lightning opens to the poles

man and woman bound

it remembers—creation is remembering

there is a you-and-I

electric charges clawing at the sky

 

don’t cling to me

soon the day will come when I will leave you

don’t worship me

please don’t make me something I can’t live up to

oh walk with me

be here now, forget about your love that died

be real to me

open up your heart and let me live inside for a while

 

are we ever more alive as when we love?

 

it was a summer framed with thunder

the flashes down the country

the blue that splits the charcoal

and brightens all the sea

the herald of the solstice

the rain that falls around us

forever says that I love you

and says that you love me
