In my mindstorm I did carry you
Through the briars of disbelief
Through the woods of lethargy
Through a groaning dark so deep
I thought I died

In the fountain I did cool our feet
Under red and rainless skies
Singing ragged lullabies
Through the grief all advertised
In neon lights

Baby - your wish is my wish
And I have only this
From now on
Baby - your wish is my wish
Keep on running to the door

I heard Beauty crying in her sleep
So I bent for one more kiss
And her tears will turn and twist
We make bliss to end all bliss
And all time

Baby - your wish is my wish
And I have only this
From now on

Baby - your wish is my wish
Keep on running to the door
Running to the door
Keep on running to the door

I heard Beauty crying in her sleep

    General CommentIsn't it interesting how we can percieve what we will too?

    Sarah's poetry is blissful.
    Her references to beauty, and so on. I believe she speaks of her own soul. Her own struggle to advance in her music.
    But who am I. Just an avid listener......and a tear-ful wonderer.

    General CommentI first heard Sarah perform this song December 2004. She introduced it with something close to "while i was in the woods I had certain needs that needed to be met. And you're all thinking what kind of needs is she talking about? pantyhose?" I always thought this song was about Person A being in love with Person B, but Person B can't stay with Person A because person B has an obligation. Person A is consoling person B saying "its okay, I'll be here for you. We've been through hell together and I want whatever will make you happy" ...this is my wedding song so, i suppose this is my own applied meanning

    General CommentI think this song is about a mother with child. This mother however was not prepared to be pregnant and is struggling with the idea.

    In my mindstorm I did carry you
    Through the briars of disbelief
    Through the woods of lethargy
    Through a groaning dark so deep
    I thought I died

    I think this is the beginning of the pregnancy. Her child is only a thought

    In the fountain I did cool our feet
    Under red and rainless skies
    Singing ragged lullabies
    Through the grief all advertised
    In neon lights

    The red and rainless skies could be her womb and most mums sing to their children in there.


    Baby - your wish is my wish
    And I have only this
    From now on
    Baby - your wish is my wish
    Keep on running to the door

    When the child is born the mum is doing EVERYTHING for baby. some times mom's needs and baby's needs cross over

    I heard Beauty crying in her sleep
    So I bent for one more kiss
    And her tears will turn and twist
    We make bliss to end all bliss
    And all time

    Now the child is born and Mom is growing to love her. Here the Baby is having a nightmare and mom soothes her.

    Baby - your wish is my wish
    And I have only this
    From now on

    Baby - your wish is my wish
    Keep on running to the door
    Running to the door
    Keep on running to the door

    I heard Beauty crying in her sleep

    Maybe that last line is the Mom.. * shrug*
