about

Written at 4 a.m. on holiday after two mystical dreams.

lyrics

Born in Toronto married in Lahore
I woke up in France dreaming of us in New York
Lost in downtown, no address and no phone
Now I'm washed up and floundering alone

Bush baby, Sufi lady
Maybe one day we can do that whirling dance
Bush baby, Sufi lady,
Maybe one day we can rise up to the skies
Meet the Prophet and the Christ
Breathing us to life.

Rain on the canvas hisses in the night
There's a child in my manger waiting for the light
All of my failings, all I've come to know
Are his for the taking now,
It's too late for another go

Hush baby

Bush baby, Sufi lady
Maybe one day we can do that whirling dance
Bush baby, Sufi lady,
Maybe one day we can rise up to the skies
Meet the Prophet and the Christ
Breathing us to life
