I’m Gonna Dig

written by: Char and Robby Rothschild

I’m gonna dig,
see what I find,
if I don’t see you in the middle, in the middle
I’m gonna meet you at the end of the line.

And when I see you,
I want to hide
In the distance that has come between us,
you can fit the whole world inside.

If I could give you
some honest time,
then we could sit down at the table, at the table
and let this tangled yarn unwind.

*

Oh when you’ve gathered in your harvest,
the wheat grown high
and it’s been ground down into flour, into flour
oh we can share that bread, you and I.

And when you’ve gathered in your harvest,
maybe it’s grapes off of the vine,
and they’ve been crushed down by the sorrow, by the sorrow
then we can open up that bottle of wine.

For we have worked all through the summer
and through the fall,
now we can rest all through the winter, through the winter
behind the sanctuary of these walls.

*

Oh when I see you,
arms open wide,
and in the distance you can see me coming
with a joy I can no longer hide
behind the sanctuary of these walls,
and we can share that bread, you and I,
and we can open up that bottle of wine,
and let that tangled yarn unwind,
oh you can fit the whole world inside,
and I will see you at the end of the line.
