Look for me another day.
I feel that I could change,
I feel that I could change.
There's a sudden joy that's like
a fish, a moving light;
I thought I saw it
rowing on the lakes of Canada

Oh laughing man, what have you won?
Don't tell me what cannot be done.
My little mouth, my winter lungs,
don't tell me what can't be done.

Walking in the circle of a flashlight
someone starts to sing, to join in.
Talk of loneliness in quiet voices.
I am shy but you can reach me.
Rowing on the lakes of Canada,
rowing on the lakes of Canada.

Oh laughing man, what have you won?
Don't tell me what cannot be done.
My little mouth, my winter lungs,
don't tell me what can't be done.

Look for me another time
Give me another day
I feel that I could change

Rowing on the lakes of Canada

    General Commenti think the line after

    "look for me another time,
    give me another day
    i feel that i can change"

    could be
    "and you'll have in yourself a sky
    give it another day
    i feel that i could change"

    ...i ran this bit of the song through some audio software to slow down the speed but keep the original pitch, and this is what it sounds like.

    such a wonderful, powerful song.. sufjan stevens' cover (on a rooftop, playing a banjo, on youtube) is also beautiful.
