Sank beneath the trees
On a bed of fresh pomegranate seeds
And lingered in the folds of dawn
Where the sunlight never leaves.
I used to call out your name to the wind
And wait for your voice to come back again
Now I lie in the reeds in a den of thieves
With anchors in my heart.

I’ll be a like a bright moon
Calling the tide near
But as much as I beg you,
Lover don’t come here.

I asked for you at the market stalls
All along the outer wall
I told the pomegranate grove
But my answer got no call
We used to look down where the river bends
And say how nothing begins and nothing ends
So why am I reckoning my deeds
In a house of thieves
With anchors in my heart.

We will be old songs
Forgotten by new ears
But as much as I beg you,
Never come back here.

I’ll be like a bright moon
Calling the tide near.
I’ll be like an old song
Forgotten by new ears
And while we’re holding out
For signs of wonder
Lover come back here.
