with 3:36min.

they are not
departed or gone,
they brought me their comfort
and later they brought me this song.
o i hope you run into them
you whove been traveling so long.
yes, you who must leave everything
that you cannot control;
it begins with your family,
but soon it comes round to your soul.
well, ive been where youre hanging
i think i can see how youre pinned.
when youre not feeling holy,
your loneliness says that youve sinned.
they (came) beside me
i made my confession to them.
they touched both my eyes
(and i)

if your life is a leaf
that the seasons tear off and condemn

they will bind you with love
that is graceful and green as a stem

when i left they were sleeping,
"i hope you run into them soon".

dont turn on the light
you can read their address by the moon;

and you wont make me jealous
if I hear that they sweeten your night

we werent lovers like that
(and besides it would still be all right
we werent lovers like that
and besides it would still be all right.) ""
