Love's Recovery (Live) by Indigo Girls


During the time of which I speak
It was hard to turn the other cheek
To the blows of insecurity
Feeding the cancer of my intellect
The blood of love soon neglected
Lay dying in the strength of its impurity
Meanwhile our friends
We thought were so together
They've all gone and left each other
In search of fairer weather
And we sit here in our storm and drink a toast
To the slim chance of love's recovery
There I am in younger days, star gazing
Painting picture perfect maps
Of how my life and love would be
Not counting the unmarked paths of misdirection
My compass, faith in love's perfection
I missed ten million miles of road I should have seen
Meanwhile my friends
We thought were so together
And left each other one by one
On the road to fairer weather
And we sit here in our store and drink a toast
To the slim chance of love's recovery
Rain soaked, voice choked
Like silent screaming in a dream
I search for our absolute distinction
Not content to bow and bend
The whims of culture, swoop like vultures
Eating us away, eating us away
They're eating us away to our extinction
Oh how I wish I were a trinity
So that if I lost a part of me
I'd still have two of the same to live
But nobody gets a lifetime rehearsal
As specks of dust, we're universal
To let this love survive
Be the greatest gift we could give
Tell all the friends
Who think they're so together
That these are ghosts and mirages
All these thoughts of fairer weather
And though it's storming out I feel safe
Within the arms of love's discovery
