If carnations heal my heart
I'll collect the pollen
and grow flowers in
the furrow of your brow

I'll take the words you say
and forget the sorrow
like ghosts blowing through me
'cause that's just what you do to me

In spite of all this gravity
I'll hoist you to my shoulders
Like a dirge without a sound
I'll walk you through the ending

The cool earth on your feet
soon you'll find it soothing
And I'll paint behind your eyelids
a dream of childhood

Just like everything that is sown
you wake with the sun in your eyes
Chance whispers in sweet breath
and angels breathing down your neck

Sorrow won't save me this time

In silence I've put away
my labor and my leisure
and let this rust run through me
Decay can be soothing

False starts and maladies
they rest between my shoulders
A void pulling at the seams
too silver for a stitch

And just like all that is sown
you wake with the sun in your eyes
Strange whispers in sweet breath
angels breathing down your neck

Sorrow won't save me this time

This unwinding coat of clay
is fallow anyway
And I'll be waiting
I'll be waiting
deep into the fall for a moment
when I hear that cold call

Spring rushes move my soul
and mum petals fall
