1. Lying In Wait

From the recording Man With a Love Song

JH: vox, tenor ukulele, violin, piano, percussion
Anne Janelle: cello


Whale in the deep blue
Elephant white
An arachnid clam’ring up a brass pipe
Like eyes in the jungle
That see through the night
Our love is lying in wait

A familiar tune
It’s there but not quite
Like a memory hides in plain sight
Like a rose in the winter
Double delight
Our love is lying in wait

Rock of ages, prophets and sages
Fate as it unfolds
Wisdom of old, the song of the stars
This thing is bigger than we are

So let’s make it happen
Let’s crack the top
Of the bottle that we nearly dropped
Who could have known
Or dared to have thought
Our love was lying in wait
