Lyrics

Short Stay

(for Jerry Garcia)

Storyteller, sing me a tale
that fits every occasion well
Smiles spread, filling the spaces
between a thousand strangers faces
Caught a chill when you caught my eye
Hit the ground when you said good bye
Emptiness in a crowded room
Such a short stay, on an endless tune.

Everybody’s dancing, twirling around
My soul is floating, ten feet off the ground.
I’ve been waiting for something new
But there’s no replacing you
No replacing you.

Barriers broken, reason is gone
Channels open, forgot the song
Bring it back with a familiar melody
Rising through this dancing sea
Caught a chill when you caught my eye
Hit the ground when you said good bye
Emptiness in a crowded room
Such a short stay, on an endless tune.

Then you told me, “Don’t you cry
My song is in the wind, it never dies
When we add it all up, and take it to heart
We get something bigger than the sum of the parts.”

Caught a chill when you caught my eye
Hit the ground when you said good bye
Emptiness in a crowded room
Such a short stay, on an endless tune.
I’ve been waiting for something new
But there’s no replacing you
No replacing you.
