From the recording Take Us to the Stars


Mountain camping / foggy morning
The old elk saw me / and I moved startled into the clearing

The old elk and me / standing by a lake on a mountain
In the early morning / the old elk and me

Can you feel a storm? It's coming up
Is it getting warm in here?
I think I feel my hair standing up
I think I see our way becoming clear

And so we started climbing up / 6,000 feet up Mt. Rainier
The pink was the sun coming up / on such elegant ecology here

As a knot begins to slip
Show me places I have missed
Let me stumble to the peak
And remember while asleep
Across the glaciers and some snow
But still have miles more to go
Fulfill the legacy from afar
Take us to the stars...
