lyrics

he fills a box with fruit and hands it to a girl
with flowers on her skirt and a ribbon in her curls
stumbling on what to say to coax her open smile
though if he had his way she’d linger for a while
to get to know him
to get to know him

in a broken handled mug he pours himself a drink
cold water from the jug or straight from the sink
his head spinning lines no spark to make them fly
to the music he can find, his own words running dry
still held within him
still held within him

but his songs are older than the road
the light and shade of a journey to be told
the path through a heart healed and torn
bruised in being born
and left to wander all alone
so he fills a box with fruit

the wind on the road cutting through the sun
the ever present flow that strips him back to one
travelling now at speed but he doesn’t feel the rush
still waiting for the one to give that little push
and she will know him
yes, she will know…

so he fills a box with fruit…
yeah he fills a box with fruit

beauty is... tears in laughter, small joys even in the midst of sorrow, a drifting feather, a cold beach, the wind over the ocean, cold fingers on the skin making your heart warm, storm clouds and lightning, rain, the sun through green leaves in the morning, voices singing, the rhythm of a drum, the beat of your heart, the sigh of your breath and moments of pure relaxation...and a ukulele helps. ... more
