To Be Given A Body

Album: Three Futures (2017)
  • Where would I have been if
    Not safe in the middle
    Pressed between
    His right shoulder
    Your left shoulder
    Drowsy on the ski lift
    Drowsy on the ski lift

    To be given a body
    Is the greatest gift
    Though the jar lifts and the jar descends
    Though the morning glory withers
    Before it begins
    Though all creation groans

    Every Sunday morning
    He'd wake me with a whistle
    Rolled me in a sheet
    I swung towards you
    I swung towards him
    Laugh till I can't breathe
    Laugh till I can't breathe

    To be given a body
    Is the greatest gift
    Though the jar lifts and the jar descends
    Though the morning glory withers
    Before it begins
    Though all creation groans Writer/s: Mackenzie Ruth Scott
