The Incredible String Band - The Hangman’s Beautiful Daughter

Not with the lips of skin nor yet with the lips of dark snow
But let the white dove sing
Of the body of life of the lover whose love is complete
Hold hands out to greet ah let not the swan be brought low

For all that is moving is moved by her hands
She is mirrored for ever in the life of the lands
In the building of thoughts in the shifting sands

Life life remembering

Well here you are now o now you are here
Well how has it been so far
The hair and the fur
Lemons, frankinscence, and myrhh

For all that is moving is moved by her hands
She is mirrored for ever in the life of the lands
In the building of thoughts in the shifting sands

Let the cracked crystal raindrop be merged in the sea
Silent shining thoughtless free
but close your eyes to find the golden flower
And open them to see the sunshine shower
Where the flowers are free and the fishes ask
Ah what can water be

She beareth thought she beareth visions
Speaking truth in contradictions
Dreams of pain dreams of laughter
And every action follows after

O second self o gate of the soft mystery
I’ll love you if you’ll love me; o guide me
With the gold of gabriel’s wing grant me the tongue
That all the earth does sing
Vibrating light forever one the sun
The book of life is open to us
There’ll be no secrets left between us

Pearls Before Swine - Another Time


Where have you been to?
Where did you go?
Did you follow the summer out
When the winter pushed its face in the snow?

Or have you come by again to die again?
Well, try again another time.

Did you follow
The crystal swan?
Did you see yourself
Deep inside the velvet pond?

Or have you come by again to die again?
Well, try again another time.

When you set to shape the world,
Was the shape the shape of you?
Or did you cast enchanting glances
Through the eye that all men use?

Or have you come by again to die again?
Well, try again another time.

Did you find that the universe
Doesn’t care at all?
Did you find that if you don’t care
This whole wrong world will fall?

Or have you come by again to die again?
Well, try again another time.

Did you ever capture
All those jewels in the sky?
Did you find that the world outside
Is all inside your mind?

Or have you come by again to die again?
Well, try again another time.

"

Twenty miles left to the shore
Hello my old country hello
Stars are just beginning to appear
And I have never in my life before been here

And it’s my heart, not me, who cannot ply
That base conclusion you may write
Watching me sit here bolt upright and cry
For no good reason at the Eastern sky

And the tilt of this strange nation
And the will to remain for the duration
Waving the flag, feeling it drag

"

Joanna Newsom - Cosmia (Album: Ys)


When you ate I saw your eyelashes
Saw them shake like wind on rushes
In the corn field when she called me
Moths surround me, thought they’d drown me

And I miss your precious heart
And I miss your precious heart

Dried rose petal, red brown circles
Framed your eyes and stained your knuckles
Dried rose petal, red brown circles
Framed your eyes and stained your knuckles

And all those lonely nights down by the river
Brought me bread and water, water in
But though I tried so hard my little darling
I couldn’t keep the night from coming in
