lyrics

Her legs as strong as water birds
she glides above the mud and murk
all the ibis follow her
into the lake of longing

Her arms tell tales of wind and hail
math mysteries, journeys by rail
all the ships set down their sails
upon her lake of longing

Her mouth is all the fruit i know
red beating heart in worlds of snow
and all the seeds she spits will grow
into new lakes of longing

The fog lifts off a world broke and bereft
the hawks have fought their brothers to the death

Her fingers taut as piano wire
still gentle on my keys and thighs
their passage leaves a wake of fire
upon my lake of longing

Hey eyes see wheels inside of time
gold as moons and harvest wine
all the travelers lose their minds
to find her lake of longing

Her mouth is all the fruit i know
red beating heart in worlds of snow
and all the seeds she spits will grow
into new lakes of longing

The fog lifts off a world broke and bereft
a lark flies up and love is all that’s left

about

Myshkin Warbler Joshua Tree, California

Myshkin and an ever-evolving crew of restless gamblers—string, horn, drum, key, and and wave players. Passions range from tango to electronica, folk-noir to gypsy-swing to modern classical to rocknroll. Literate & spooky. Myshkin mostly plays guitars. When warm, she sings like a shiver down your chakras. Like a heart breaking all wide open. Like one in utter control of uncontrollable things. ... more
