gypsy flat road

"I wrote this song on a travel guitar in Switzerland last winter. It`s the meeting grounds for the emotions of gratitude, longing, celebration, and grace." (taken from her website)

Across the gypsy flat road
Where everything closes down tonight
Across the gypsy flat road
Where the steps and the stars are light

And it rained all day
And it rained all day
And it rained all day
With the bounty of new wine

The sky settles in low
On the rooftops of this trainboard town
We are upstairs alone
And we speak only with the whisper sounds

Will there come a day
When our faces will not lift out of the dust
Can we then still say,
That this mercy is our only trust

…what was incurable, desperate blindness
has been bound up from all sides with lovingkindness
comfort for sorrow,
rivers for dryness
come and drink you who have no money

And it will rain all day
And it will rain all day
And it will rain all day
With the bounty of new wine
