lyrics

Some mornings round her shape at the window
I was stirred with the dust in the light
And the outlines of dove dreams in the morning
Would bear out their boundless flight
But now, oh

I move with the breeze in the evening
And the lead that it takes from her street
I reach for things beyond my grasping
And roam beyond the good sense I would keep

A wander's heart cannot be burdened
Blinded by silver and gold
He's senseless of all but a hunger
And hunger won’t let his feet hold

We met on an ageless shoreline
She sailed her ship with steady hand
The seabirds knew her kind gestures
I received them with one foot in the sand
But now, oh

We've drifted with an ocean far between us
Forgotten by our words unsaid
Covered by the skies of autumn
And sunk down to the deep sea's bed

A wander's heart cannot be burdened
Blinded by silver and gold
He's senseless of all but a hunger
And hunger won’t let his feet hold
