Said I’ll live by candlelight and make the moon my home
Tie up the tides as they rise and as they fall
What can I give? What can I hold?
Should I even ask these things at all?
So I live by candlelight and darn if I know
I'm walking down this road alone
But watch the earth
For a grid will unfold
Until I find my golden home
I left that world of dreams and entered one anew
A planetary truth is born of lightning
There's nothing left when you suffocate the hours
Spent beyond what time had tried to offer
So I live by candlelight and darn if I know
I'm walking down this road alone
But watch the earth, for a grid will unfold
Until I find my golden home
There's a ghost making up its mind down into my bones
Isn't this what you brought me here for?
This parallel of backwards gifts lifts into my eyes
Isn't this what I felt the need for?
Oh child, you keep living that way, in your own time
This feeding back of circles and this loop for which I'm thrown
The moon will never keep us from unfolding
I'll point my way back home until my fingertips turn blue
There is no me and there is no you
So I live by candlelight and darn if I know
I'm walking down this road alone
But watch the earth
For a grid will unfold
Until I find my golden home
