Don’t go out
Don’t blow out
Don’t smother me, lantern

Don’t reach out, Phil
Don’t extend
Don’t try to touch nothing

I’m afraid I’ll see you out on a date
And it’ll send me camping

Don’t steal my show
That lantern light
Not linger nowhere
Not on your life
Leave alone don’t try to hold nothing
Don’t answer the phone
Leave alone be a darkened figure
Sinking slow
Have your fort glow
Have your lit up lantern

How did you know to come over tonight?
Your blazing lamp was blinking up the sky

What’s that you hold and
Why is it so bright?
My heart of snow
Must leave alone
This blizzard white

What’s that you hold and
Why is it so bright?
When I walk away
I’ll leave a shade on your glowing doorway

What’s that I/you hold and why is it so bright?

You look good
In my light
But my life flame flickers
Leave alone
Let cold lakes lie
Let me end my light leave

I’ll hang it high
On antlers wide
Let bloom like sunrise

Let go of everything
