lyrics

Seeker said the tracks in the mud
are leading him away.
Seeker said goodbye from the start,
but the path was mine to take.
Seeker said, “It’s time for a walk.
I know that there’s been pain,
and there’s more.”
And I’m tired.
So tired.

Hear the Chalice break.
I’m am colder than before.
But it’s not the loss of you I face,
it’s the light above the dunes-
left me asking:
have I lost her?
Dark little Bird?
Waterkeeper.

I could show you personal resolve-
fill our hands with seed.
I could show you all the things unseen.
I could tell you visions never came,
and let the knowing fade,
but you called her by name.
You called her by name.

Hear the Chalice break.
I’m am colder than before.
But it’s not the loss of you I face,
it’s the light above the dunes-
left me asking:
have I lost her?
Dark little Bird?
Waterkeeper.

So I’ll get down to the business
of loving another when he comes.
I will be moonlight and laughter
and in what comes after
she may step across the shadows
or be lost where we left her.

Hear the Chalice break.
I am colder than before.
But it’s not the loss of you I face,
it’s the light above the dunes-
left me asking:
have I lost her?
Dark little Bird?
Waterkeeper.
