    There's a red leaf that falls from a purple tree it falls it floats down
    One red leaf against a clear blue sky it floats down
    Past the marbles in the clearing
    Beneath the geese in flight
    To the darkening river in the autumn light
    Where it touches down
    Oh like a great bird landing
    Tears of autumn
    There's a white tent that sits in the middle of a raft that floats down
    Floats down the middle of a river, of a stream, floating down
    And the tears streaming from the mind's eye
    Streaming back beyond the white sheets that flap and fly
    Oh tears of wanting
    The white tent the raft
    The white tent the raft
    The white tent the raft
    Fists and chests
    Mango clearing:
    Oh mango in the clearing
    It's his leg or something
    Waiting
    Everything would be alright
    Watching the trees
    Then his toes
    Then the trees
    Deeper into the jungle
    And leaves him there
    We turn off the tv
    Never forget that night
    Never heard you
    Couldn't sleep
    Hotel window
    Get up to those dark peaks
    Everything would be alright
    (transparent):
    There's a clearing to the right
    There's mango
    Clutching his knees
    Looking at his feet
    Watching the trees
    Bees bees
    Like he's always there
    That he doesn't care
    Maybe not
    But he's been waiting there
    For them to return
    For a long long time
    I get angry as i watch
    See him wait
    Only half alive
    So patient there
    Looking at his toes
    Picking at his fur
    Watching the trees
    ... finally she comes
    Picks him up
    Safe now
    Clings to her
    Waited all this time
    I guess he was right
    What do i know
    At both things i cried
    And she holds him tight
    Knows his little body well
    He's come from her
    She moves back into the trees
    Not like northern trees
    But the jungle somewhere
    Moves deeper and deeper
    Into the thickness
    She leaves him there
    Why should he survive?...
    I turn off the tv
    That night we both cried
    I will never forget that night
    Another man, dancing
    I came back so alive
    You were so open
    Someone i didn't talk to much
    Not really talk
    ------
    Though travelled side by side
    We cried for mango
    You were so open
    --
    Side by side
    Mango in the clearing
    The ships in the harbour
    Finally fell asleep
    Cried ourselves
    Well, i couldn't sleep
    Got up
    Frowned alone
    The middle of the night
    The summer breeze
    Raised my eyes
    Up to the peaks
    So dark and moving back
    The crouch white
    And i knew
    If i could only get there
    Everything would be alright
    The white tent the raft
    The white tent the raft
    The white tent the raft
    Fists and chests
    Great overcoat clearing:
    And when it's not our great overcoat
    It's a grey and yellow dress
    So beautiful the bees they followed you through the mall
    To the clearing in the wilderness
    And you lay down and i picked you up
    And i said you must never leave
    Your beautiful hands like knitting needles
    And i said-it's jane it's me
    She said-when you go that's when you go
    Lighten up and pass the cup
    Fifty bucks and that's all you got?
    Yeah i love you i love you a lot
    (transparent):
    (assisi, italy 1986)
    As you move away from me
    For whatever it all means
    I call you back but you don't hear
    At least you have some joy in my dreams
    And when it's not my great overcoat
    It's a grey and yellow dress
    I tried to find for you
    So beautiful the bees followed you too
    Through the mall
    Out into the fields where the flowers blow
    And when i woke one night
    And the wind was blowing ceaselessly
    And with such violence
    I walked out to the terrace
    To throw myself off
    Then the darkness charged
    My shirt with such light
    I forgot my purpose
    And drifted away
    Through the gardens
    To find my great overcoat
    And i sat and waited for you
    I waited and watched
    But you lay transparent and waxen
    Only your see-through fingers
    Fluttering a description
    Of her "silver umbrella
    The most beautiful you had ever seen"
    You can't ever leave me
    Because part of me goes with you
    And part of you stays with me
    And waits for the wind to stop
    And understands the silence with me
    And drifts through the darkened garden
    In our great overcoat
    `til we are stopped by a marbled portico
    That stares at us like a map
    I've remembered and will
    For many years
    Or all my life
    For who will know
    When i lay back
    The time i go
    My hands will flutter
    In the same way
    Like the sifting snow
    The drifting snow
    The silver umbrella
    It was so beautiful...
    I'd never ever ever ever...
    It's very warm
    Are you warm...
    There's water nearby
    I can tell...
    (assisi, italy `86)
    And her soul escaped or tried to
    But me- i tried not to let her
    I ran and picked her up
    She was light as a feather
    And her hands were knitting needles
    And we talked about the weather
    And the hands fluttered in the air
    About a silver umbrella she saw there
    Her friend has won it at the fair
    The most beautiful she'd ever seen
    Fluttered down the autumn leaves
    Caught like jags of silver
    In the woolen weave of my love for her
    I said - it's me
    You must never ever leave
    And her hands described a silver umbrella
    Or was it a silver tent...
    Or was it a white tent now...
    There's a white tent that sits in the middle of a raft that floats down
    Floats down the middle of a river, of a stream, floating down
    And the tears streaming from the mind's eye
    Streaming back beyond the white sheets that flap and fly
    Oh tears of hardness
    The white tent the raft
    The white tent the raft
    The white tent the raft
    Fists and chests
    Overkill clearing:
    Found the snake in the clearing
    And it tried to kill him of course
    But then...only after it tried to get away
    He said-youse the meanest ugliest low-down
    And he cursed and swore
    Gonna shoot the damn thing
    (i'll never let nobody hurt you)
    I watched from the raft
    And i withdrew my scent
    It's not hard to kill a snake
    The white tent the raft
    The white tent the raft
    The white tent the raft
    Fists and chests
    Angry clearing:
    What do you mean i love you
    Stop saying i love you
    I don't know what you mean anyway
    I don't know what love is and...
    You don't know what love is and...
    It doesn't change anything anyway
    Ah...who cares
    Who gives a...
    Because all i see
    Is more hate
    More fear
    Less light than before me
    The white tent the raft
    The white tent the raft
    The white tent the raft
    Fists and chests
    Bird clearing:
    Get off my branch...
    Stick legs-they are not
    This is my tree
    It's getting lighter
    I'm talking to you
    Turn down your radio
    Dawn is coming
    Run!
    Every morning when the sun comes up
    As long as he can get up!get up!
    Yeah i love you i love you a lot
    Lighten up and pass the cup
    There's a thousand white tents on a thousand rafts all floating down
    There's a thousand fists and a thousand chests they come thundering down
    And the tears streaming for a thousand eyes
    Streaming back beyond the white sheets
    That flap and fly
    Oh tears of hunger
    There's a white tent that blows in the middle of a raft that floats down
    Down the middle of a long and lonely dream
    Or is it lovely? can't always tell...
    And the clearings pass
    Like blowing scarfs
    The slightly familiar
    The slightly apart
    And the river never runs dry
    Oh tears of open
    The white tent the raft
    The white tent the raft
    And one red leaf for my love...for your love
