1. Muse

From the recording Lean In

by Gretchen Parlato, Gretchen Parlato Music ASCAP


Wandering melody
Whispering through the trees
Suspended then float to the ground

Magical glistening
Finally, I’m listening
To nothing and something profound

Where does it go?
Someday I’ll know
I’m patiently holding the sound

Branches inviting in
Swaying into the wind
Just noticed they’ve been all along

Weeping and open arms
Be still before your charms
I promise to sing you a song

Been here before
Now, and once more
And ever returning again
