lyrics

The day after a rainy evening
Every rainbow trout was rising
Waters churned and surged around me
As I commenced to shed my skin so ghostly

The night before a placid morning
Enemies aloft and chirping
From some old cave ideal for hanging
I left behind the aquatic edges

I’ll never know how us mayflies make it
Through the long dark streams and rivers
But you can fly with me as soon as I get wings
We’ll make it through the weeds together

I was made for the river valley
The faintest trace of blight will do me in
Today I look to lay the eggs
That sink toward the deepest places

But all our days are one quick exhale
When our hatch comes we’ll be dead and gone
When our hatch arrives we’ll just be songs
We can weave our way through the sleet and the hail
And rest beneath a daffodil

I’ll never know how us mayflies make it
Through the long dark streams and rivers
But you can fly with me as soon as I get wings
We’ll make it through the weeds together
