Lyrics

Starflower Blues, by Lauryn Shapter

The gossamer is glistening on a mist-enveloped morn
April’s wedding gown
A thousand pearls of light draped on a sea of evergreen
You only see rain falling down

The summer sun is rising but a storm’s surely brewing
On some far distant shore
So shutter up the windows from the starflower blues
And don’t forget to seal the door

Chorus:
Why do you run from the sun and rail at the moon?
You’d put the rain back in the clouds if you could
‘Cause the day lasts so long but the dark comes too soon
And nothing acts the way it should

Now the autumn breeze is singing to the whispering wild rye
I want to dance to their song
Ain’t no time for that, you say, ‘cause winter’s coming soon
Mark my words it won’t be long

And you and I are standing ‘neath the same November sky
It feels like heaven to me
Rose dipped in gold falls on those whiskey painted hills
But I can’t make you see

Chorus:
‘Cause you run from the sun and you rail at the moon
You’d put the rain back in the clouds if you could
‘Cause the dark stays so long but the day comes too soon
And nothing acts the way it should

The winter light is weaving through those tall noble trees
Long shadows full of grace
The waltz of the sun and the snow on the creek
They keep me tethered to this place

Chorus:
I want to run to the sun and drink in the moon
I’d let the rain wash us clean if I could
‘Cause the dark stays so long but the day’s coming soon
And everything is as it should be
Yes everything is as it should be
Everything is as it should be
