House of Sky
 

House of Sky  © Michael Tomlinson

A photograph of the world and the way you see it
How could anybody ever capture so much life? 
Through a tiny lens you squeeze the whole wide world
Here we are, standing in this house of sky

You look around at the falling autumn glory
Think of all you know and let it roll away and
Rearrange the way you tell that old story
Start again, welcome in this golden day

And if I know anything it's that we'll all rearrange
Everything we thought we knew is bound to become many other things           
Let it all rain and laugh out loud like you can't get enough
If we're going to live it may as well be with big, big love

A fisherman with a grin and a fresh fish carcass
Throws it off of the cliff for the sea gulls and crows
Mighty eagle fly from high in the tall tree top
Steal it away, show us all just how it goes

See the girl with the laugh and the flashing camera
How she looks at me with her autumn brown eyes
From the day we met my life is big, big love
Heaven and earth hold me close like a favorite child

And if I know anything it's that we'll all rearrange
Everything we thought we knew
Is bound to become many other things
Let it all rain and laugh out loud like you can't get enough
If we're going to live it may as well be with big, big love

Oh, come away my darling, there's a world without a name
Where the swaying trees and gardens
Grow inside your heart and shed their seeds like rain ~ like rain

Some day we'll lay on the earth in wonder
All the pictures that you took will flutter by and
Float down like painted leaves and cover us
A gust of wind will blow us through this House of sky

And if I know anything it's that we'll all rearrange
Everything we thought we knew is bound to become many other things
Let it all rain and laugh out loud like you can't get enough
If we're going to live it may as well be with big, big love
