Five Feet Ten


And then you were lost in the grey of the moody mountain
She looked as if she hid my dreams under the veil of silence
She keeps on her own but the clouds still are her playmates
So they would guard the moon and she wouldn’t protest
Five feet ten, I stand so far
Must see you again; wish you had kissed me a scar

And then you were lost in golden green avenues of winding roads
I like to believe your rear view mirror is deeper than it looks
If you see a country boy he shall strum you my name in A-major
He will ask you to look down seven thousand and two hundred feet down
Five feet ten, I will be looking up for you
Five feet ten, perhaps at you….you never know, right

Five feet ten, you were a stranger
Five feet ten, you’re now a whisper
Must see you again

I wonder how no one told me you are a memory maker
You weave a memory before a songbird could leave her perch
Sweet remembrance, not even the great Rembrandt could paint
The isle of your eyes, the young falcon knows, the archer’s bow that is your smile
Five feet ten but your heart is my home
My home of ruby, I have a pearl in my eyes

I have heard that over the hills and far away and beyond
The fountain of lights, they teach how to bring back the colors
Back into a broken cage that has been sketched with lead
So I wish you wash your feet in the rapids and send me a kiss downstream
Five feet ten, my whole being is a bucket
Must see you again, when a year is born
In seven days but without any rest
