lyrics

"If I Could Hold The Thought Of You"
Billy Bonney to Paulita Maxwell, July 1881)


If I could hold the thought of you
I would know just what to do
I would gather at the breaks
I would know the bridges' shapes

If I could see into your heart
I would treat it as an art
If I could see you as a child
I would know wounds and the wild

And we would wander, we would wind,
We would kiss and be kind
We would wander, we would wind,
We would meet at gates of dawn


If I could hold the thought of you
I would know just what to do
I would gather at the breaks
I would know the bridges' shapes

If I could hold you when we're old
I could see what cups we're forged
If I could see what you have shown
I would know the end of our long, long road.

And we would wander, we would wind,
We would kiss and be kind
We would wander, we would wind,
We would meet at gates of dawn
