I catch your fallen body
Breathing slowly in my arms
Draped in soothing waves of honey
We take and give each other warmth
Abandoned lifelines are reformed

Without hesitation
We walk into the dark
We follow burning constellations
Black mirrors carrying our bark
Made of porcelain with crimson marks

My head lies calm between your hands around my face
Thoughts come to rest and leave the labyrinth of old days
The air goes back and forth between our naked lungs
Two heartbeats counting seconds, filling hours,
One by one by one

Engraved in aeons of creation
In peaceful innocence aligned
Old planets ceasing alteration
Good omens and growing faith entwined
And nothing's left but our souls immersed in time

Now golden particles of dust
Are swirling down from way up high with endless trust
Like light falling through amber stained with rust
The universe alone surrounding us


from Light Your Fires, released May 26, 2017
Additional vocals by the wonderful Noll Griffin (who this song is about. I love you.)
