lyrics

It takes such a long time to move
it takes longer to fall asleep
waiting for eyelids to close
ventilating at the nose
keeping track of the moon
what more can you do with counted sheep
how steep the climb tends to look
how level the ground when you forget to notice
atop you forget to

stay a little while
stay as if there was not a reason to run about
stay a little while
stay at least until you're needed
stay a little while
stay adrift among everything, watch it swim around
stay a little while
stay akin to the background

A dozen moves
a dozen more to make in a moment or two
which dozen should you choose?
how many more could you find if you looked?
accumulating piles and piles and piles
do you carry them from miles away
do you trek as far as you can
will you turn around to see what has turned, what has turned
will you wish that you had

stayed a little while
stayed as if there was not a reason to run about
stay a little while
stay at least until you're needed
stay a little while
stay adrift among everything, watch it swim around
stay a little while
stay akin to the background


Imagine
imagine that it all were to go, were to go
what would it mean then?
isn’t it bleak that in time, yes, it will
does it make you freeze
does it turn you around, and around and around
isn’t it impossible to live and to
contemplate it as it looms as it looms as it looms
aren’t you clinging to your bones aren’t your bones clinging too
aren’t you glad to be around for an instant
aren’t you?
what a privilege that we could

stay a little while
stay a little while
stay a little while
stay
but rarely do

will I strain to remember how this felt?

hoping to open wide and collect the scent
still i toss it around and ask it "what next?"

will I strain to remember how this felt?
