we talk of miracles. of undelivered letters written years ago. of many things that are dear to me. the mighty happenings.
i can only be your canvas. you were golden light reflected all around us.
but i'm exhausted. i'm exhausted.
there's never been a cloud in the sky for you.
without this what will i do?

and i know. soon, you'll go.
and i'll pass you, earth or ash.

i asked to hear of your garden. to take each of my limbs and dream of happen.
thought i can go again, till i can talk and bend and flower anew.

    "I asked to hear of your garden. to take each of my limbs and gently plant them."

    Easily their best song, her vocals and the mysterious lyrics are really haunting.
