about

Many musical worlds colliding in the night here and making sweet love. Cat Stevens, a trip to Turkey many years ago, a feeling about the continuity of it all instilled by Humanist parents on the Upper West Side. Now, this one, the wife likes. A lot. In fact, all people who believe in love will like this.
-W. Berlind

lyrics

Lost and found An echo of a sound A ripple from a drop of water A photograph A sleep a dream a laugh Another chance another offer
Knowing is not smart, it is just knowing And leaving is just one kind of going Leave the door open If the night’s not too cold
Keep the light on for St. Anthony’s return
One small ring
Gently glistening
At the bottom of a river
I held my breath
I could not take my rest
The water made my body shiver
Knowing is not smart, it is just knowing
And leaving is just one kind of going
Leave the door open If the night’s not too cold
Keep the light on for St. Anthony’s return

Wouldn’t you agree We should always be
By each other’s side? (2X)

(interlude)

Lost and found St. Anthony came round
And brought two people back together
Say a prayer into the evening air
And he might bring back what you treasure

Knowing is not smart, it is just knowing
And leaving is just one kind of going
Leave the door open
If the night’s not too cold
Keep the light on for St. Anthony’s return
