    Lyrics

    They dream impossible dreams of loquat seeds (gold flecked and slippery),
    And clipper ships pitched on sea foam green,
    Hibiscus reds and you and me.

    We kicked a new path back to the St.
    Marie past snowmen quiet and listening.
    Brightly colored birds flitted past their coal-for-eyes.
    I took it for a twinkle.

    If they could have held all that you said
    In their densely mitten packed cold,
    Then words would have fallen out come Spring like spoons and pistols
    And pots and pans
    And train wrecks and splitshots and marching bands.

    And canaries light on corncob pipes
    And would not look so bright
    If not so cold.

    They dream impossible dreams
    Of bitter sweet brevity
    And standing at the foot of Niagara Falls
    And buck and doe
    And chief and squaw
    And the path we kicked back to St. Marie past snowmen,
    Quiet and listening.
    Canaries tracing loopholes against the gray,
    You took it for a tangle.
    You took me for a tangle.
    If they could have held all that you said

    Canaries light on corncob pipes
    And would not look so bright
    If not so cold.
