A Thousand Pictures

Mossy Stream

.

a picture worth a thousand words
belongs in a museum
not a heavy heart
.
hanging on the songs of birds
have to let them go
somehow
.
all the bark strips off
all the bark strips off
piece by piece
.
on your own by the dying stream
why did you go?
why did you go?
.
trying to have a peek underneath
reflection hiding
in the dusky glow
.
when all the bark strips off
all the bark strips off
piece by piece
.
don’t you hide your face
don’t you hide your face for me
[repeat]
.
all the paths weave into one
might as well go home
might as well
.
there’s more life under that stone
than you’ve ever seen
ever known
.
and a thousand pictures
a thousand pictures
what a waste
.
but don’t hide your face
don’t you hide your face for me
[repeat]
.
it’s not worth repeating
it’s not worth repeating
it’s not….. ah well
.
don’t you hide your face
don’t you hide your face from me
don’t you hide it
don’t you hide your face from me
.
