lyrics

For you are sharp and clean,

You’re beaming brightly.

A flash of color as seen

On a bird in flight, for

You are soft and wild

Like the tunnel of night

That promises dawn

That holds the howling stars.

And you fit well into

The spaces made by curves bones

And also on the places where

The blood is closer to the skin, for

You are soft and wild

Sleeping with the waves

Under the sea and the sun

Under the howling stars.

And maybe if our veins instead

Held only water and light

Well then the heart

wouldn’t have to work so hard, for

You are soft and wild

Like a spring unwinding

Like clouds evaporating

Like a school of fish retreating
