  1. Song for Cari -:-- / 4:13

On a Saturday afternoon
With the leaves on the trees like my heart in bloom
And Lea’s building a spaceship to take us to the moon
Out of crazy carpets and garbage cans
And silver tape and magic hands
And I’m feeling so open and so free

It’s been a long, hard, lonely year
But I finally let go of all my fear
And I’m open broken-hearted like I wanted to be
Do you remember that first night when
I said, We are pebbles in our lover’s hands
Shiny, but slippery and so hard to hold

And you said, Let me hold you
Let me put my arms around you
Like a redwood or a sycamore tree
And then you held me
Put your strong arms around me
And I finally felt open and free

And I could feel you
Like springtime in Nova Scotia
Like waves and sand and strong bodies holding each other
And I could feel you
The way you look into people’s hearts
And find what they need
The way you listen to the sea shells and sing with the sea
The way you hold me
The way you kiss me
The way you touch me
The way you miss me
And I finally, I finally felt free
Yeah, finally, finally felt free.

On a Saturday afternoon
With the leaves on the trees like my heart in bloom
And Lea’s building a spaceship to take us to the moon
Out of crazy carpets and garbage cans
And silver tape and magic hands
And I’m feeling so open and so free
