one more time

one more time before you go

one more time

one more time and then you'll know

i recall

ruby flowers on the wall

i recall

gilded frames all down the hall

you stole the show

sitting pretty, tall and proud

in the front row

as i lingered in a bow

every trace

every note and light and page

lives on your face

as you move to take the stage

nights and hours at this table

pinning seams, you're one hand able

i climb trees, i know
you'll be there watching

i used to walk

all across the parking lot

we used to talk

of a war that you had fought

a blue oak frame

near a window facing east

a box of games

much too young to wait and see

set the brush down on the table

with this scene, you're one hand able

i dream high and
you were right there watching

at the desk you proved a fable

making stitches one hand able

tell me anything at all
i'm waiting

there were cushions on the chair
they sank real low

when you put them there, i had to go

dreams of love, you heard, you did

i didn't think to ask where you once lived

one more time

one more time before you go

one more time

tell me please how will i know

when it's time

if it's time just tell me so

and when it's time

say goodbye before you go
