Two Little Children

… up all night drinking beer and listening to old kyler, dekana, and figment recordings … two days and counting until i am no longer a fish …

Two Little Children

Jan Martin Borgersen, 1991,

recorded by Figment and the Rest, 1994, on Common Ground

Underneath my pillow I hide all my wishes
I don’t want to lead a life full of only near misses
And I can see your eyes as you stand next to me
And now on these lips I feel soft gentle kisses

I take your arm as we skip around the fountain
We’ve tumbled through the grass and we’ve climbed all the mountains
(mountains are ours)
And I can see your eyes as you gaze into mine
(like the stars)
Always and forever we’ll be two little children
(happy children)

I take your hand as we walk to the altar
We’re tying the knot say a prayer to God the Father
(God does hear us, child)
And I can see your eyes as you lie next to me
(no lies are said)
Always and forever we’ll be two little children
(smiling children)

Underneath my pillow I release all my wishes
I’m living a full life, full of all of my wishes
And I can see your eyes as you lie next to me
Always and forever we’ll be two little children
And I can see your eyes as you lie next to me
Always and forever we’ll be two little children

I touch you one last time as they carry you away
Lower you in the ground and they carry you away
And I can see your eyes in a memory of mine
(sweet memories)
Always and forever we were two little children

Underneath my pillow I bury my wishes
I’ve lived a full life full of all of my wishes
I can see your eyes in a picture on the wall
Always and forever we were two little children
(blessed children)
Always and forever we’ll be two little children
