lyrics

With a breath of sun and skin, I can feel this begin
complacently akin, to places not yet been
there's light beyond the walls and above our earthly stall
but the place where it begins, still reeks of dirt and skin

Candle burn strong, the light will carry on
a fog that cuts a line, through a flock of empty pine
the earth is still before the rain it will endure
but you, you sound like spring as you blush above the knee

A stones throw, the windows,
a stone's thrown and I'll go
to skies, they'll gaze at night
knowing beauty hides from sight

The wind reaches her hair, she can feel the balmy air
a charge with which I'm blessed, to be beauty's witness
our youth's what makes us hurt and returns us to the earth
try as though one might, to run from their own night

A scene of life unfolds, I was there from what I'm told
that day you colored me and that night that I found peace
I'll kneel 'cause no one's there as the light bursts through the air
take moments as they come, don't wait for perfect ones
