You tried to chase her out of your dreams
Into the wild waking world
But can't you see that's blasphemy?
Holy isn't something you hold

You callused your fingers to speak to her
nd followed her up wooden stairs
But every time you came close she climbed
Into quivering ash in the air
And went away

You wanted her to stay
Angry at the light
Twisted in the sheets
Let him sleep

Caught in your carousel dream each night
In daytime you searched for her eyes
And gathered some lovers and held them too tight
And hoped they were her in disguise
Just sweet lies

Those deep purple lovers you wore like a cloak
And tangled yourself in our sighs
But we didn't see it was lies that you spoke
At least I didn't see that you'd
Always go away

You promised you would stay
I'm angry at the light
I'm twisted in the sheets
Just let me sleep
