Schwa Lyrics


Lyricist: Ed McGee
Vocalist: Ed McGee
Just one breeze, so sudden
in the heavy summer heat,
a whisper cool and smooth
the night refuses to repeat,

a swish of leaves against themselves,
so lush after May rains,
a momentary murmur
in the calm the night maintains,

a brief caress so cautious,
so gentle then it's gone,
I gaze into the dark for
any glimpse of where it's drawn.

And then I'm left bewildered,
and oddly pleased and stirred,
as if that sudden evening chill
had called and I had heard;

my eyes, beneath the maple there,
so wide till they adjust,
till silver, teal, and charcoal
fill a valley wrapped in rust;

and off toward the west
a little pond quite still, serene,
and luminous as moonstone
lights the hillside in between.

And gazing down toward the glow
I finally catch the sight:
that breeze upon its journey
rippling tall grass in the night;

as quickly as it passed by me,
I watch it touch the pond, 
which quivers just as I had,
so gently then it's gone.
