about

A love song to fandom, filk and family, with a special dedication to our absent friends.

lyrics

As I awaken in the morning
There is a magic in the air
I know the voices of my people
Humming gently everywhere

And there is laughter from the hallway
Friendly faces come alive
As if we'd gathered in this place for always
Although we've only just arrived.

Now put on all your pretty ribbons, dear
And ring the bells and all draw near
So we may make our music bright
And paint the sky with sound and light
And sing in our imperfect harmony.

In the clasp of our reunion
Within the circle of our song
We are joined in absolution
We have found where we belong.

And so our memories will bind us
Though we may scatter with the wind
Home and family will find us
If we keep them close within.

So pack up all your pretty ribbons, dear
We'll bring them out again next year
And if we keep our music bright,
The time will fly until the night
We sing in our imperfect harmony.

We are waiting for the moment
We are holding to our someday dreams
When love will spill beyond the broken borders
And fill the spaces in between

When all our fretting and rehearsal
Set the stage for something new
Something more when we're together
Something wonderful and true.

Bring out all your pretty ribbons, dear
And ring the bells and all draw near
So we may make our music bright
And paint the sky with sound and light
And sing in our imperfect harmony

Put on all your pretty ribbons, dear
And ring the bells and all draw near
So we may make our music bright
And paint the sky with sound and light
And sing in our imperfect harmony
In harmony.
