1. Love Story (Four Verses on The Divine Unity of All Things)

    The other night I had a dream that the world was on a moving screen

    And some folks were laughing but some were crying

    Some folks were dancing but some were dying

    They all were searching to the keys to their apartments

    Or the keys to existence, or the key to her heart

    But all of the keys, see they got locked in the garden

    Before the film even started, but the band couldn’t help but play

    She looks beautiful today

    I’m all out of answers, but you should definitely dance with her

    Cause this breath’s as deep as you make 

    And there’s a chance if you take it

    The neighbors had a swimming pool 

    Their five year old she broke the rules and she

    Treaded water for half an hour

    It was too late by the time they found her

    So blame the parents, blame the lock on the fence

    The missing keys to existence

    Pound the ground with your fist and pray “won’t you take it all away”

    If this cough turns fatal, if you force my cards out on the table I’ll say

    Morning comes when you need it, even blind eyes can see it

    Fingers fumble in the dark, how do you make a beating heart

    Out of nothing with no instruction

    What moves his hand if not for love, and 

    Then you stand blown away that some else can meet your gaze

    What form! What possibility! I hope she has blue eyes, just like

    Did you hear we’re keeping the baby

    This life is such a funny thing

    That there is something and not nothing

    Oh what a bed to make love in!

    A love story- a boy and a girl we

    both fought with our hearts and fought with our maker

    A love story from Eden to glory

    That stretches as deep as it streches wide

    And all of it matters, the centerpiece was shattered

    and could not be fixed, so it was made perfect

    And all of it matters, the kingdom was scattered

    into the blood and on every face we see

    For every blue eyed daughter

    For every child pulled from the water

    I see

    The love of the same hand

    More than I can see or understand

    I’m all out of answers, but you should definitely dance with her

    Cause this breath’s as deep as you make 

    And there’s a chance if you take it
