  1. Chapter Book

From the recording As You Believed

Lyrics

I don’t think we’ll end this thing tonightWith all those pages stacked up on the rightMaybe we should just switch off the light…I miss the gentle closure of each rhymeThe simple repetition marking timeWhere each adventure’s finally so much counting sheepDriving us inexorably to sleep.But look, we’re in this chapter book.With one brave move we shook All the pictures and bright huesInto words we’ll learn to useThis chance we took, this chapter book.Last night our whole world was washed in dyesEvery page could saturate our eyesNow a pencil sketch would make us gladThe shadow of the colors we once hadAnd wandering through these lines we’ll lose our placeWe’ll leave a trail of dog ears to retraceReturning every night to find untoldThe story, patient, waiting to unfold.  And look, we’re in this chapter book.With one brave move we shook All the pictures and bright huesInto words we’ll learn to useThis chance we took, this chapter book.
