When I was sturdier I'd talk about how
"certainly we'll die
Eat shadows, bury candles.

When I was sturdier I thought
"So what? I am forever mountainous!"

I bravely said, "No death of any kind could
Ever matter to my mountain mind.
Come years, come surging, I am tall!"

When I was "sturdier" I was secretly afraid,
And the fear was blinding.

As you can see. I am no rock.

Through mountain wind,
What I actually am is thinning clouds.

    Lyric CorrectionWhat do I want with my life now that I'm blinded by your light
    Should I keep trying to see through it or just lovingly close them, should I?
    What do I want now that the air leaves my lungs and I roll over to you in the night
    Should I breathe you in, you're floating beside
    What do I want when we're apart now that I'm wed to you
    I am holding an open door, though I will not contain you
    What do I want with my soft skin now that you're near to me, my bride
    Nothing, I do not want it, just let me feed you
    What do I endlessly ask about now that your love swells and pounds me
    I know nothing, now that I know you, your fog's wrapped around me
    Invisible, inside, dumb and blind, newborn babies come to life on my face, they say, "Ta-da!"
