Robyn's introduction to the song on 5/8/2022
This is a song I wrote when my Mother was leaving this world. Even after all this time I don't really know what to think, or feel, or say about my Mother.

Lyrics

Evening bells
They're ringing in your cells
And your soul is rowing out to sea
Night comes down
Shadows swim around
But the green light flowing out of me

The magic hour
Your skin was like a flower
You were all that beautiful could be
In your crimson robes
Earrings in your lobes
But the green light flowing out of me

Green light flowing out of me
Like a sunflower husk
Silhouetted on the dusk
But the green light flowing out of me

You hang so long
Like an apple that belongs
On a branch upon an evening tree
But the branch must bend
Release you in the end
But the green light flowing out of me

Green light flowing out of me
And all I know
Is that everyone must go
But the green light flowing out of me

The words decay
But we say them anyway
And they echo where your head would be
And your head has gone
Your feelings linger on
But the green light flowing out of me

Green light flowing out of me
And the midnight train
Dissolves into the rain
But the green light flowing out of me
