Seasons are a Changin' Lyrics

Winter Moon...


uh Uh uh uh Oooooh

Silver bark gleams in moonlight

Songbirds huddled on a branch

Melodies weigh heavy with mood

In the midst of winter's twilight


uh Uh uh uh Oooooh

Where is the night owl

Wisdom falling to the ground

Gets buried beneath the earth

Sweet prey for sapient seekers


oh Oh oh oh oOh

Winter moon skies of dark

Winter moon seeking stars

Winter moon winter moon winter moon

oh Oh oh oh oOh

Winter moon darkness looms

Winter moon beckoning full

Winter moon winter moon winter moon


uh Uh uh uh Oooooh

Night air filled with wonder

Mystery dissolves in space

Footsteps fall into emptiness

Walking through pineless woods


uh Uh uh uh Oooooh

Sage breath crystallizes time

Frozen inside a lucid moment

Reverence calls your name

Can you hear beneath the silence


oh Oh oh oh oOh

Winter moon skies of dark

Winter moon seeking stars

Winter moon winter moon winter moon

oh Oh oh oh oOh

Winter moon darkness looms

Winter moon beckoning full

Winter moon winter moon winter moon


uh Uh uh uh Oooooh

Don't fear treading the unwalked

Blessed are those who sing the song

Left unsung on winter's tongue

Inside cold begotten days


uh Uh uh uh Oooooh

Silence is the wise man's prayer

Exiting the forgotten season

Leave behind untold truths

Bury them beneath the earth


oh Oh oh oh oOh

Winter moon skies of dark

Winter moon seeking stars

Winter moon winter moon winter moon

oh Oh oh oh oOh

Winter moon darkness looms

Winter moon beckoning full

Winter moon winter moon winter moon

Thrush of Spring...


The thrush of spring verdantly green

Colors life into the marrow of my bones

Thoughts slowly trickle down to the ground

Swallowed up by earth's soundless sound


Soul awakens at the beckoning of dawn

Winter's embrace is all but gone

Leaving cold traces of stardust behind

Days slowly melt as the sun unwinds


The thrush of spring verdantly green

Fecund with fertile earthen dreams

Steals me with a thousand violet kisses

As I dance inside tiger lily blisses


Love sings out spring's vernal song

I swim in a sea of poppies all night long

Wake up under morning blue skies

With dreams caught in my eyes


The thrush of spring verdantly green

Releases butterflies into the day

The taste of nectar upon my tongue

I swallow down songs left unsung


Hummingbirds circle in nectared flight

Jasmine days warm up my cinnamon nights

Lilac wine flows from the vine

Drunk off love's sweetest divine


The thrush of spring verdantly green

Dandelions hold untold wishes

A four leaf clover's growing in my heart

The birds and bees are playing their part


My soul dances at the edge of dusk

Summer hints with a scent of musk

Thoughts of you make my heart swoon

Let's drink mead under the moon

Taffy Blue Skies...


Under taffy blue skies that stretch

Over me drinking clouds through a crazy straw

On a smiling summer afternoon

Daisies dance with daffodils in laughing fields


I get up and run until my feet are one

Run until I'm one with the sun

Run until I'm falling falling falling

Falling into the heart of the moon


Under taffy blue skies

That stretch on and on

Here comes the sun

Here comes the moon

Here comes the earth

Here comes the sky

Here comes the truth


Under taffy blue skies that stretch

Across the roof of the earth

Tiger Lilies roll off my hips

Sweet kisses taste like sugared lips


Chocolate wishes fall to earth

Fall into my wishing mouth

I swallow them down one by one

Swallow them down June's endless throat


Under taffy blue skies

That stretch on and on

Here comes the sun

Here comes the moon

Here comes the earth

Here comes the sky

Here comes the truth


Under taffy blue skies that stretch

Beyond the promised pot of gold

Found at the end of the rainbow

Where time ticks day into night


My elastic soul spoons the earth

As I drift off into never neverland

Where dreams fall from shooting stars

Fall onto the tip of my dreaming tongue


Under taffy blue skies

That stretch on and on

Here comes the sun

Here comes the moon

Here comes the earth

Here comes the sky

Here comes the truth

Changin'...


I look out the window

I see so much change

I walk down the street

I see so much change

I look to the past

I see so much change


Inside these changes

Silence sits inside my soul

Like a calm autumn breeze

On a slow autumn day

Leaves a changin' and a fallin'

From high branches to the ground

As life becomes autumn bound

Beneath my slow and fickle feet


The seasons, they are a changin'

The times, they are a changin'

And me, I'm a changin' too

Changin' changin' changin'

I'm changin' from the inside out


I look out the window

I see so much change

I walk down the street

I see so much change

I look to the past

I see so much change


All these changes, they got me thinkin'

I need to stop gettin' hung up on worry

Instead sit under a tree

Listen to the changin' of the seasons

Of summer turnin' to autumn

Leaves turnin' to red, gold and brown

And many colors inbetween

Beneath my slow and fickle feet


The seasons, they are a changin'

The times, they are a changin'

And me, I'm a changin' too

Changin' changin' changin'

I'm changin' from the inside out


I look out the window

I see so much change

I walk down the street

I see so much change

I look to the past

I see so much change


Soon winter'll bring us more changes

Birds'll head south carryin' their song

Leavin' bare trees to mourn

Beneath silence of the moon's stare

No leaves to hide their wounds

As they patiently wait for spring

Along with you, along with me

Beneath my slow and fickle feet


The seasons, they are a changin'

The times, they are a changin'

And me, I'm a changin' too

Changin' changin' changin'

I'm changin' from the inside out
