about

We should never stop reading aloud to the ones we love.

lyrics

Like the words to an ancient incantation
“This is my favorite book in all the world.”
Begins our endless exploration
Through ink and paper, Aether, air, and soil

The wind is ripping ‘cross the mainsail
Splashing big wet drops upon your sill
But you want to find out what comes later
Like the first to put parchment under quill

And I’m saying, “I love you,”
With someone else’s words
In every nightly story
Just saying, “I love you,”
With someone else’s words
Like countless come before me

The caves are dark and wet and twisting
And the woods have no easy paths to tread
But there’s comfort in the sound of recitation
And the pillow is soft behind your head

We’ve appeared before great kings
Been tracked from dream to dream
Flown weightless wrapped in foreign clouds
Leaving traces only we can see
On shelves against the wall
And in solid memory

We learn the might of dark and secret orders
We see the power in making one last stand
And we know the joy of journeys never ending
From hidden gardens to the Summerlands
