This Night Wounds Time
Tell her the earth doesn't spin
Anymore. That the waves won't visit
These shores. And the clocks and the tears
In the wake of change there's darkness and fire.
Give me a splinter from yesterday's words.
Make that simple dream and flight come true.
Or put me to sleep
To dream in your arms. I'll bury my face
Let's visit those shores. Sit on the sand
Ten days apart and ghostly arms
I'll send you a touch
To lift us away.
I came from the stars.
I dream all day.
