lyrics

Dead of winter.
I washed up at your door at nineteen.
Full of questions—
You fed me apple pie and I
Stayed past summer
To hear the words and music meant for me.
A place to be.

If I'd heard nothing but your voice,
If I'd seen nothing but your face,
If I'd felt nothing but your love
Still I would come.
"If..."

I sought connection
Was looking for the Lord of Seasons.
His reflection
Illumined common ground. I found
All my answers
Were hidden in a slice of apple pie.
And that is why

The road that I traveled twisted and turned.
I found its every pothole and its dead end streets.
Then I found the path to heaven
Ran right through your living room.
Where every refugee and seeker had a seat.

Through the years you've
Put your hands to thread and needle
With His pattern
Until the quilt was done. And one
Of the pieces
You worked into the quilt so carefully
Was patchwork me.

If I'd heard nothing but your voice,
If I'd seen nothing but your face,
If I'd felt nothing but your love
Still I would come.
"If..."

Jeff and Maya Bohnhoff San Jose, California

Jeff and Maya have an identity crisis. Their music is sometimes uproariously funny parody (like their spot-on "Bohemian Rhapsody" parody "Midichlorian Rhapsody", or hauntingly beautiful, like "Road to Jerusalem" or "Manhattan Sleeps". One way or another, their music will create strong emotions. Jeff and Maya have been creating music together since 1979, and plan to continue for some time to come. ... more
