His face white so placid
Her mind was a cold casket

while one counts the birds in hand
the other holds them too tight
she took all of t hem and flew off into the night
floating like a tail-less kite.

He took up all her thought
chewed it up and then forgot

While one holds the birds in hand
the other holds them too tight
she took all of t hem and flew off into the night
floating like a feather in flight

She sees the picture clearer
the knot shapes like fear

you feel that she has forced you
into a corner she has coerced you
but it was her heart she gave out
and your white hand was hardly held out

She thinks of days that passed
remembers and starts to laugh

You feel that she has forced you
into a corner she has coerced you
but it was her heart that she gave out
and your white hand cut it out

While one holds the birds in hand
the other holds them too tight
She took all of them and flew off into the night
floating like a feather in flight
she became the night
she became the night
