Roughly as big as my fist,
it would break to see you again.
Aren't we tired of this?
The wind is colder and the soil is broken open.

I bought a telescope.
The paper said the moon was new
and so I looked up in the air.
I needed something new but there was nothing there.
(This thing is withering)

I bent the earth
to see your form rise into the frame,
frail though it is to mention more to the passing days.

I broke the earth
to hide you beneath the graying sky.
Clouds covered every corner;
field's fallow season dies.

    General CommentEasily -the- most compelling song. (I randomly stumbled on a MySpace playing this song and proceeded to order the Prayers and Tears album.)

    As far as I can tell, the speaker wants something more out a withering relationship with someone. The music tells the rest of the story. Beautiful~
