Songcatcher

from by Men With Day Jobs

lyrics

From somewhere in the other world, he comes
with magic box held tight -
hears the life blood flowing, the rhythm of the rowing

In spinning cylinders of precious stone, the unsung
heroes tell their tales - the loving and the leaving,
labours of their true believing
He's a songcatcher, he’ll capture every note you sing,
carry them away to other lands
He's a songcatcher,
drawing dreams into his box, saving every spirit in your song,
till there’s a place they can belong
Against the grain of mighty commerce , their stars reduced to sell
- he holds a humble station of culture cut from constellation
He's a songcatcher, he’ll capture every note you sing,
carry them away to other times
He's a songcatcher,
drawing dreams into his box, saving every spirit in your song,
till there’s a time they can belong
I dreamed I found a marketplace - a one-stringed cosmos,
nature-tuned - where every human fable was shared around the table
And we’re all songcatchers, we’ll capture every note we sing,
carry them away in hearts and minds 

We’re all songcatchers, drinking up each other’s lives,
sharing every spirit in each song
Till there’s a place we can belong, a place we all belong
