Now that it’s light
Now that the candle’s
fallen smaller in my mind
Now that it’s here
Now that I’m almost
not so very far behind
I want to know
Do I stay or do I go?
And maybe follow another sign
And do I really have a song
that I can ride on?

Now that I can
Now that it’s easy,
ever easy all around
Now that I’m here
Now that I’m falling
to the sunlight & a song
I want to know
do I stay or do I go?
And do I have to do just one
And can I choose again
if I should lose the reason?

Yes, and the morning has me
looking in your eyes
and seeing mine
Warning me
to read the signs
more carefully…

J. Browne
