Hominid

Lucy dear, you always scaled the highest tree

Never looking down

Lucy dear, sometimes I see yourself in me

But it’s a long way down
And if time was on our side, I’d find that tree and climb

And prob’ly find you reaching for a bluebird

All our sins I would confess, and all our fates I would undress

And I doubt you’d understand a single wordOh Lucy

Can’t you see that it’s a long way down

Oh Lucy

We saw the stars when we should’a seen the ground

Lucy dear I know you’re so much more they say

But that don’t fossilize

And Lucy dear I wish I really knew your name

Or that you knew mineSo once time is on our side, I’ll find that tree and climb

And prob’ly find you reaching for a bluebird

I’ll go out on a limb, then I’ll bеg you to forgive

And you won’t understand a single wordOh Lucy

Can’t you see that it’s a long way down

Oh Lucy

Wе saw the stars when we should’a seen the groundAnd they say what goes up must come down

And it seems to me this ship is earthward bound
