You Go On Ahead (Trumpet Trumpet II)
You go on ahead for awhile I would like to follow you awhile You go on ahead for awhile I would like to just follow you awhile And I'd like to watch the white flash of your heels As they take turns breaking the desert heat to beckon me In languages I've never learned And I'd like to have you navigate two hills Where no musicians live And on the way decide what bendings of your will You're willing to forgive And I'd like to think the actors never banded And I'd like to throw this trumpet down and go on empty handed And I'd like to think I am not one of them but I know I am So I'd like to just follow you awhile You go on ahead for awhile I would like to just follow you awhile And you go on ahead for awhile I would like to just follow you awhile When me and the boys were out We killed a thousand butterflies So I put their wings into my mouth And said a prayer for our safe arrival And then a big black car crossed our path And I wondered whether or not that ship was empty You go See the sirens and the lizards lick their tongues behind the stage See the actor keep a ritual to keep them all at bay He would like to come home naked without war paint on his face And appear before you, virgin white if virgin's are still chaste So when you've got to wait And you've got to wait And you've got to wait for me And I will appear before you virgin white if virgin's are still chaste Then I'd like to just follow you awhile And if there are two eyes in my head there are four seasons In a year And reflections on the water of a burning yellow sphere And the days add up to weeks add up to months And add up And add up to years And if reflections on the water sometimes look like burning tears We can watch them change in shape without pushing off the pier
