I drove to Kill Devil Hills
beside me a woman I could not touch
we looked out to the ocean the moon
trail of light that led from wherever we stood
I grow lighter every day
I could have taken that trail
stepping light to light the wave dance
you waiting for me your house open
lights on the lawn
women dancing men flutes guitars drums
beside me a woman I would not touch
you waiting your clothes open
I should have taken that trail
I grow lighter every day
I stood in your water
beside me a woman I might have touched
I had only to rise the moon pulls us all
we drove to meet the moon and the moon's tide
at Kill Devil Hills even there
I didn't fly to meet you
you waiting for me
beside me a woman I did not touch
but I grow lighter every day
