Mary Chapin Carpenter - Transcendental Reunion Lyrics


From twenty thousand feet high
Saw the lights below me
Twinkling just like Christmas.
We descended slowly
And the curve of the world passed
With all of that flying
Above the mighty ocean
Now we all are arriving

Grab the carry-on baggage,
Join the herds for the mad hunt
Take a place in the long line
Where does everyone come from?
As we shuffle on forward,
As we wait for inspection
Now, don’t be holding that line up,
At the end lies redemption.

Now I’m stamped and I waved through
I take up my position
At the mouth of the canyon
Saying prayers of contrition.
Now, please deliver my suitcase
From all mischief and peril
Now the sight of it circling
Is a hymn to the faithful
Forgive me my staring
For my unconcealed envy
In the hall of arrivals
Where the great river empties
Its hand carts and quarters
All the people it carries
To the greeted with flowers
Grand fathers and babies.

There is no one to meet me
Yet I’m all but surrounded
By the tears and embracing
By the joy unbounded
The friends and relations
Leaping over hemispheres
Transcendental reunion
All boarders vanish here.
We are travelers travelling,
We are gypsies together
We’re philosophers gathering
We are business or pleasure
We are going or coming
We’re just finding our way
To the next destination
And from night into day.

In a giant bird’s ballet
I flew over the ocean
From twenty thousand feet high
How all those lights were glowing.
