From the album The Quality of Light

It is about our ancient ancestors, and thinking about how they shaped our lives now. Kind of a jazzy pop ballad enhanced by the beautiful acoustic bass by George Koller. Features overtone singing in the intro, the middle section and the outro.

Lyrics

THE ENDEARED ONES

The tales that are told
Embossed in the heavens
Embolden not only a few
Are there for the taking
And never forsaking
The oldest or those born anew

Like threads of a tapestry
Woven so patiently
Over and under again
For those gone before us
We join in the chorus
And heartaches are now on the mend

We tread upon lightly
The way the endeared ones
Created so long ago
No secrets they keep
There is no need to weep
For as above so is below

Regaining the senses that seemed to be lost
Cast out and thrown to the sky
Like seeds of intentions
Like scattered inventions
Remembering how they can fly

We tread upon lightly
The way the endeared ones
Created so long ago
No secrets they keep
There is no need to weep
For as above so is below
We tread upon lightly
The way the endeared ones
Created so long ago
And graces they buried
We secretly carried
The beauty is starting to show
