“For Comfort Bates”

And there was blood, there was blood
There was blood in the water
There was blood in the water on the morning you left your mother on her own
Left her to her own devices

And there were years, there were years
Between our father’s fathers
Between our wildest wonderings
So why is your name, on my tongue pressing?
As comfort comes, and comfort goes

And still in this house, in this house
Where I cut my teeth and crossed my fingers
Counting stars like counting tree rings
In the backyard in the morning
As your lengthy shadow falls

Still there are lives, there are lives
Springing out from under floorboards
Through the wind as it is whipping
And like thoughts sewn out of hope and memory
We are always intertwined

Yes as long as comfort comes
You know your blood’s still in our blood

Yes as long as comfort goes
You know your blood’s still in our blood
