Whispering Pines

Lyrics: Robbie Robertson and Richard Manuel
Music: Robbie Robertson and Richard Manuel

Sung by Nicky Bluhm with Phil Lesh & Friends as part of their tribute to Levon Helm.

If you find me in a gloom
Or catch me in a dream
Inside my lonely room
There is no in between

Whispering pines
Rising of the tide
If only one star shines
That's just enough to get inside

I will wait until it all goes 'round
With you in sight, the lost are found

Foghorn through the night
Calling out to sea
Protect my only light
'Cause she once belonged to me

Let the waves rush in
Let the seagulls cry
For if I live again
These hopes will never die

I can feel you standing there
But I don't see you anywhere

Standing by the well
Wishing for the rains
Reaching to the clouds
For nothing else remains

Drifting in a daze
When evening will be done
Try looking through a haze
At an empty house, in the cold, cold sun

I will wait until it all goes round
With you in sight, the lost are found
