Pick me up, up from this filthy ground Give me a little love Lord knows I need it now From a tiny hand I fell suddenly Before I even landed I had drifted off to sea I will move beneath the air and I'll miss being in a pair And I'll hope Through and through That one day I'll be one of two As my woolen threads Turn hard with ice and salt I dream of my only friend and how his sadness is all my fault I won't know how far I've traveled when I wash up on your shore though I may be a bit unraveled please open up your door I will move beneath the air And I'll miss being in a pair And I'll hope Through and through that one day I'll be one of two One of two One of two Smile, or even laugh when you pick me up from the street and give me back my other half mismatched just for me mismatched just for me mismatched perfectly for me

You came over my shoulder With a point of view No one but you could expect Your eyes far away like a soldier's In those pools you kept me And never let me forget Before I knew what had happened I was older And you a false prophet I couldn't resurrect But we crossed The borderline Slipped down The other side Could have swept that line away From the sand Had we used our feet Instead of our hands So many white envelopes to open And so few to whom A response or a tune you will send Maybe somewhere on the other end Somebody's hoping After all this time to ease the mind of an old friend But we crossed The borderline Slipped down The other side Could have swept that line away From the sand Had we used our feet Instead of our hands Now I hope you are well 'Cross these idle miles And silver turnstiles I just can't tell From your words black on a white glowing page If you're young like you were Or if like me, you've aged

Don't you forget me this year When it snows You tell me it's warm where you are So it goes When the water falls on our heads We're surprised Though we can plainly see All the clouds on the horizon But you've emptied your pockets Of all the shells and dust within Held my hand then dropped it Like that's the way it's always been Out of the way, and into the wind Slowly the ships Find their way into the harbor Never wondered what if They had chosen to go farther If every sea aw, were that easy We wouldn't need widow's walks I believe life's storms will lead me From these thoughts But you've emptied your pockets Of all the shells and dust within Held my hand then dropped it Like that's the way it's always been Out of the way, and into the wind Into the wind, the wind, the wind Into the wind, the wind, the wind

Stand on two feet No shoes or floor Look right through me Don't say any more You don't need No fetters In case you see Something better Well go your lonely way I can't make you stay But now my heart is open So for a while I'll be hoping Oh... Fall down slowly Don't ever stop You're below me And I can't catch up We won't meet Till we're on the ground You'll land on your feet Without a sound Well go your easy way Live the dream, as you say But when you're old and leaning I hope you've opened yourself up to meaning 'Cause now you're fleeing Stand on two feet But don't look up The land's as empty As the sky above
