Every night she'd come to me
I'd cook for her, I'd pour her tea
She was in her thirties then
Had made some money, lived with men

We'd lay us down to give and get
Beneath the white mosquito net
And since no counting had begun
We lived a thousand years in one

The candles burned, the moon went down
The polished hill, the milky town
Transparent weightless luminous
And covering the two of us
On that fundamental ground
Where love's unwilled, unbound
And half the perfect world is found

The candles burned, the moon went down
The polished hill, the milky town
Transparent, weightless, luminous
And covering the two of us
On that fundamental ground
Where love's unwilled, unleashed, unbound
And half the perfect world is found
