don’t forget about delight lyrics – bruce cockburn

amid the rumours and the expectations
and all the stories dreamt and lived
amid the clangour and the dislocation
and things to fear and to forgive
don’t forget
about delight
y know what i’m saying to you
don’t forget
about delight
y know
amid the post-ironic postulating
and the poets’ pilfered rhymes
meaning feels like it’s evaporating
out of sight and out of mind
don’t forget
about delight
y know what i’m saying to you
don’t forget
about delight
y know
though you find yourself alone and stranded
with no friend to take your side
on the endless road afoot and empty-handed
where the wild-eyed cossacks ride
don’t forget
about delight
y know what i’m saying to you
don’t forget
about delight
y know
spring birds peck among the pressed-down gr*sses
clouds like zeppelins cross the sky
anger drips and pools and then it p*sses
and i say a prayer that i
don’t forget
about delight
y know what i’m saying to you
don’t forget
about delight
y know
