Clothes of Sand

Who has dressed you in strange clothes of sand?
Who has taken you far from my land?
Who has said that my sayings were wrong?
And who will say that I stayed much too long?
 
Clothes of sand have covered your face
Given you meaning, taken my place
Some make your way on down to sea
Something has taken you so far from me
 
Does it now seem worth all the color of skies?
To see the earth through painted eyes
To look through panes of shaded glass
See the stains of winter's grass
 
Can you now return to from where you came?
Try to burn your changing name
Or with silver spoons and colored light
Will you worship moons in winter's night?
 
Clothes of sand have covered your face
Given you meaning taken my place
So make your way on down to the sea
Something has taken you so far from me
