These Strings
 
Lyrics
Your fingers must trust to the song
Your fingers must thrust into dawn
If you're to catch your bow afire

Your bow so tightly drawn
Throws arrows lighted with song
Over the walls to catch all the Earth afire

And make it childsplay to cut away these strings
Childsplay to cut a way to Spring

This wooden box holds solar wind
This wooden box holds the whole Earth within
You release when you cut free these strings

And make it childsplay to cut away these strings
Childsplay to cut a way to Spring

You're a child with a shell to your ear
In rush to tell stories you hear
You're a child filing right through the bars
Cutting right on through the heart of things

And make it childsplay to cut away these strings
Childsplay to cut a way to Spring

'Til these strings have no catch
'Til these strings have no strings attached
To the time before our voices changed
Before choices were so arranged and tied to things

And make it childsplay to cut away these strings
Childsplay to cut a way to Spring

And you make it childsplay
