1. Love Mischief

From the recording Holy Fallout


Even after all this time
the sun never says to the earth,
“You owe me!”
Look what happens with a love like that.
It lights up the whole sky.

I used to wake up all alone
and wonder what I’d do and where I’d go,
but that was before the seed cracked open
and I knew there were two of us
doing the shopping together,
tickling each other at dinner.

When I’m awake all my instruments play,

God, what love mischief can we do for the world today?

The heart she has a thousand strings
Our fear tends to come from being
out of tune with the love that sings
a chorus we’re meant to join.

Can you shape magic into sound
and pour it in the bruised ear of this town?
Let everyone know about one of Love’s favorite words,

“Sweetheart, Sweetheart, Sweetheart,
Sweetheart, what love mischief can we do for the world today?”
