The glistening of summer swellin’
In the dawn all hung in sheets around the room
Oh, the mornings subtle sighs
Whisper someplace back her eyes
As she is waking

The melodies, I hear them rising
And the murmur of the morning’s pregnant glow
And on her tongue, a velvet rhyme
She threads her fingers between mine
As she is waking

She kisses me…
I close my eyes…

I can taste those nights spent shivering
‘Neath the sheets in cells all pulsin’
I can feel them tricklin’ back my mind
And they’re trickling on’

Cause you led me home
And I was out there wandering
‘Pon burnt black stones
Where nothin’ grows
But silence…

She says “In sleep I heard you singin’
And I saw a street all red-raw memory”
Yeah we both hear those memories scream
From every corner of our dreams
But we are waking

And in her hand some song she’s holding
For a time when she’s in need of something pure
Yeah, someday she’ll let it fly
And watch it bloom beneath that sky
All bent and shaking

She kisses me…
I close my eyes

She’s telling me…
She loves me

There’s a light all swellin’ in my chest
There’s a hope I’m scared to name
But still it lingers back my eyes and
Hangs from off my breath

Yeah it paints my thoughts
In shades so beautiful
And I feel complete, were I once lay wrecked
And broken
