i would take you . . .

i would take you home

if i knew where that was

 

i would take you home

if you knew where that was

 

if your feet had roots

if your hair had wings

if we could fly

if we could grip this earth

 

with something other than

desire

 

i would take us home

if we knew where that was

 

it could be right

it could be sweet

it could be the beginning

 

i would take us home

i would plant us there

comb your feathers

groom your wings

 

set you free
