lyrics

In the dark I said
"Here are my desires
O monster of all monsters”
I put them before you
In a hope reserved for fools:
that you’d speak;
that you'd share
the same tongue

but you just laid by me in silence
midnight’s funereal band swirling around us
not from the songs that they played
nor from the fears with whom I layed
but something far away
bubbled up through our charade
and bayed

"it’s ok"

another night
when I wasn’t alone
Love’s pale face
smiled on me
I’d found home.
but I asked her
where she’d been
in the twilit interim
I asked her questions
till the words
made no sense

In truth
there’s nothing we can say
but it's ok
just place a kiss
upon the eyes
that at you dumbstruck stare
keep breathing life
into the timeworn love
all humans share
as you run one trembling hand
through locks of ancient midnight hair
and say

"It’s Ok"

an adult in the dark
is no braver than a child
both hold their own
dim candles to the wild
they may whisper different hymns
but there’s no difference in
the comfort they seek from them

I wanna be able to say
that it’s ok
if I spend my whole life
around fires
on my way
through your forest riches
my love
