Gingerbread


You can see me anytime you need me
C                        F                 C
Warm beyond a reason
F                       G  C
Night is on the wing
Am                 C
And you could linger like a grind of ginger
C                            F                    C
Making love a season
F                    G   C
Heating up the skin
Am                C

We are not our gravest deeds
C                       Am
You are not your grieving
F                       G     C
For the bravest flower seeds
C                     Am
As the birds are leaving
F                       G     C
As the thin glow of summer's death
C
Will turn the leaves to red
Am                            G
May the wind blow like a lover's breath
             Am                   G         C
Still warm as gingerbread
      F             G       C

You can see me anytime you need me
Warm beyond a reason
Night is on the wing
And you could linger like a grind of ginger
Making love a season
Heating up the skin

You could water me with tears of hunger
Like the wheat in winter
Pressed into a bed
Like a handprint, flour upon a black dress
White against the darkness
Leavened into bread

Ch: We are not our gravest deeds
You are not your grieving
For the bravest flower seeds
As the birds are leaving
As the thin glow of summer's death
Will turn the leaves to red
May the wind blow like a lover's breath
Still warm as gingerbread

Dreams are kneaded into walls and windows
Sheltering our sorrows
Dusted and adorned
With the sweetness of some kind tomorrows
Sugar's incompleteness
Wrested into form

Ch

While the black sky spreads its myth of thunder
That we labour under
Reckoned by the dead
These are crude thanks, charity and food banks
For our harvest splendour
Pepper for our bread

Ch
The duke, the wanderer, the philosopher, the mariner, the warrior, the strategist, the storyteller, the wizard, the wayfarer...
