I slept sweetly unpretending
That the night was always ending
She breathed lightly right next to me
And I dreamed of her inside of me

And in my dream she sang so sweetly
A melody I hope to sing
So enslaved by her sweet wonder
It cut my legs and fingered hunger

She sang my name and so engulfed
I cried and felt my legs fail
In her arms I trembled electric
Oh and she let me and she held me

Then waking she was older still
And holds my love against its will
In spell cast with her palms extended
Cursed love is never ending

Cursed eyes are never closing
Cursed arm are never closing
Cursed children never rising
And cursed me never despising

Oh I am loving always holding
While she sleeps her song enfolding
Epic song it tells of how
She and I are living now

Cursed love
Cursed love
Cursed love

    General CommentJust might be my favorite song on The Letting Go. The way the strings enter, and how they carry the listener through the song is beyond words...Will Oldham is surely one of the greatest songwriters to have ever lived. Ever.

    General CommentAt this point this is my favorite song.....It is amazing.....Cursed Love. I think this song is about loving someone that you dont have, cant have but you can in dreams and that is the curse......
