Let me lie across your crescent spine
Press my belly to the mountainside
Glorious our earthly bodies rise
Fall and rise

The wineskin and my eyes are dry
Though the spirit and truth abide
When you stir throughout the wakeless night
Stir and sigh

Oh
I am a union
Oh

Do-do-do-do-do-do-dooo-do-doo (x2)

Without joy, I left without recourse
I approached the giants who came before us
In a resurrected voice
I can conjure up a soundless void
Baby lay your hand
Where we begin and end

Oh
I am a union
Oh

D-d-d-d-d-d-doo-d-doo (x2)

    My InterpretationIt's "let me lie across your crescent spine."

    And I think it's "the wine-skin and my eyes are dry."

    It's definitely not "I love you" between the "oh"s. It sounds like "I am you knew/new" but that doesn't make much sense. Hard to say.

    Also, I'm pretty sure it's "Without joy, AND left without recourse." It makes more sense and sounds more like that.

    It's definitely "I can conjure up a soundless VOID" not voice."

    Also, I think it's gotta be "We begin AND end" not an. You can't hear the "D," but that's just how people talk. Plus, if he meant to say "an," he would've pronounced it like "un" not "Anne."
