lyrics

I’ve looked out this window
so many days of old,
watching water move
through seasons gone cold.
We are stretching in
our borrowed skin.

To venture past safe ground,
I’ll only smother out the light.
But in my night’s waking,
the walls will tumble down and burn.

Fire find your way away from me.
I’ve watched your flames twist
inconsistently.
The ravens wait in graying eves,
I don my guise and smile when you leave.

It’s enough.
It’s enough
to be warm.

We went like lions,
we went like lovers,
we went like children
to the edge.
I held my breath,
reached for the spindle,
and laughed a what went Red.

Oh Fire, in wanting
I’ll only smother out the light.
But in my night’s waking,
the walls will tumble down and burn.

Fire find your way away from me.
I’ve watched your flames twist
inconsistently.
The ravens watch in dawning hours.
I close my eyes and smile
with autumn showers.

It’s enough.
It’s enough
to be warm.
