lyrics

Ah, hello—I know it’s been so long,
And now, my soul contrives in song
To express my joy and my surprise
At finding you’re still there.
Without a reproach, without a sulken stare,
Downcast, I approach and try not to despair.
But now, a smile, a hand in friendship—
“Sit down awhile, fret not at things outside of your care.”

Well, I know—I’m bent, but undeterred.
Take heart, though it seems I’m unconcerned.
An alarm goes off, and I wake up with a start
To find myself caught off-guard.
They hedge, and they plot, to accomplish God-knows-what
For a Fool’s Camelot, with ever stranger gods—but
Let’s raise a glass in celebration!
That now has passed, and I’ve regained all I forgot.

Some take strange for its own sake.
I’ll take what’s tried and true,
At once, both old and ever new,
A flame, a light regained, and I remain
Immortal, in debt to you.
