From Anne’s album with David Roth Rhubarb Trees

David:
Let us sit and talk together, let me help you understand
Since I know that you are reaching, let me take your hand
Anne:
I can’t see you as you see me but I see with inner sight
It is quiet, it is thoughtful, it is beautiful and bright
Chorus:
day or night, night or day
we move forward either way
night or day, day or night
spring from darkness into light
David:
Some of us see shadows, dim or undefined
Some see color, some see nothing, many kinds of blind
Anne:
I am reading with my fingers, I am seeing with my ears
and my eyes they are not empty, just like yours, they fill with tears
Chorus:
day or night, night or day
we move forward either way
night or day, day or night
spring from darkness into light
Anne:
When I’m walking in the garden and I smell the fresh, green ground
I can tell which birds are singing. Do the colors match their sound?
David:
Are we more alike than different? Can we help each other see?
Build a bridge of common vision, you to me?
Anne:
Let us sit and talk together, will you help me understand?
Since you know that I am reaching, will you take my hand?
David:
You can’t see me as I see you but we see with inner sight
It is profound, and it is powerful, it is beautiful and bright
Chorus:
day or night, night or day
we move forward either way
night or day, day or night
spring from darkness into light
