Jubilee Lyrics

Artist: Mary Chapin Carpenter
Album: Jubilee

I can tell by the way you're walking, you don't want company
I'll let you alone and I'll let you walk on and
in your own good time you'll be
Back where the sun can find you, under the wise wishing tree
And with all of them made we'll lie under the shade and call it a jubilee

And I can tell by the way you're talking, that the past isn't letting you go
There's only so long you can take it all on,
and then the wrongs gotta be on its own
And when you're ready to leave it behind you,
you'll look back and all that you'll see
Is the wreckage and rust that you left in the dust on your way to the jubilee

And I can tell by the way you're listening,
that you're still expecting to hear
Your name being called like a summons to all who have failed to account
For their doubts and their fears,
they can't add up to to much without you
And so if it were up to me Id take hold of your hand
Saying come hear the band play your song at the jubilee

And I can tell by the way youre searching,
for something you cant even name
That you havent been able to come to the table,
simply glad that you came
When you feel like this try to imagine that were all like frail boats on the sea
Just scanning the night for that great guiding light announcing the jubilee

And I can tell by the way youre standing with your eyes filling with tears
That its habit alone that keeps you turning for home, even though your home is right here
Where the people who love you are gathered, under the wise wishing tree
May we all be considered then straight on delivered down to the jubilee

Because to people who love you are waiting,
and theyll wait just as long as need be
When we look back and say those were halcyon days
Were talking about jubilee
