See, the drapes of fog
Enfold the boat below
But once when waves gave way to oars
I heard the lilt of ancient notes

So I pushed and pulled
And heaved with sailor's urge
To hear, to feel, to know once more
The song somewhere beyond the river bend

I waited for you to come home
Tides receding still return

A song is not its source
It too will run its course
And when the mezzanine dissolves
I'll touch again whatever was
