lyrics

oh my darling, my love for you runs through me
like the river runs around a stone

I have a passageway through my house for you
and if there’s any way to get your feet on my land
I’ll bring you here, I’ll bring you here
and I know your heart is closed and full
there are many like you, sunk like a stone

the grace that passes me catches up with you
and it’s built like the back or the inside of lace
having no name; not needing to
and although you are so beautiful
I’m in love with the things that you help me make plain

if I want you in my life
must I hold you like a spanner
making a fist like I’m fighting

if I want you in my bed
must I hold you like a mirror
held to the lips of a dying man

I have a passageway through my house for you
and if there’s any way to get your feet on my land
I’ll bring you here, I’ll bring you here
and I know your heart is closed and full
there are many like you, sunk like….
a stone
