from Headwaters by Jason Tyler Burton



Where do your headwaters run?


We went down to the river bed
To tell our secrets
To raise the dead
Wood on the fire
Well we sat close
To recall those ghosts
We missed the most
Said we got to go now, said we got to go

To where my headwaters run
Where my headwaters run
Say goodbye with the summer sun
Going to keep on
Moving on

We went down to where the river bends
You took my hand
And you kissed my chin
Took off your clothes
In the meadow there
And poetry fell from your hair
You said we gotta go now, said we gotta go

To where our headwaters run
Where our headwaters run
Say goodbye with the autumn sun
Going to keep on
Moving on

And all that I hope for
Is that all that I want
Becomes only just those things I need
Like a small house
In the pine trees
And a big heart for the world
A warm fire
On a cold day
And my arms around my girl

Out where my headwaters run
Where my headwaters run
Till I’m the best I can become
Going to keep on
Keeping on
