Mockingbird

Everything that rises must converge
The sun comes up on this wicked word
And everything that matters fades away
You’re constant as a star ‘til the break of day
Everything that rises must converge

Everything is flowers from the first
It’s cherry wine and Italian verse
And just because our lives are filled with sorrow
Doesn’t mean we won’t be sad tomorrow
Cause everything that rises must converge

Every single thought rides through the air
The terrible highs the mild despair
Drifting through the trees like a whispered word
Carried on the wings of a mockingbird
Everything that rises must converge

I had a dream that you drifted far
Through my window through the yard
Drifted through the trees like a whispered word
Carried on the wings of a mockingbird
Everything that rises must converge
Just because our lives are filled with sorrow
Doesn’t mean we have to be sad tomorrow
But everything that rises must converge

I dreamed I caught a mockingbird…
