I Need You

January’s very warm this year

You are the april that seems so near

All the right words were always backwards

Now the cats are carried off by blackbirds

I need you

Am I too near sighted to see what’s going on

or scared to admit this time nothing’s wrong

Your love always rains like the sun

Separate but connected to everyone -

That needs you

It’s always so very hard to find - walking around so blind

Velvet and ashes, old worn wood, and a rose with thorns

Hear those bells from far away 

They’re ringing something clear and true today

The world is singing so sweetly now -

everything’s a melody of you somehow

I need you
