lyrics

I would carry your bones
across darkening plains
to bring pieces of you
back home again
under that mother-of-pearl moon
under that desert sun
i would never wane
i would never run.

To be with you at the sparking
where horizons meet the sea
i would never beg your pardon
i would only beg belief
to be with you at the sparking
where horizons meet the sea
your gasps pass like luminous ships
across desires beach and i will go...

And there are silkworms hanging
by the thousand by the bough
and they are weaving me into shapes
i do not recognize now
(maybe i did once
but maybe not now)

I would carry your bones
across darkening plains
to bring pieces of you
back home again
under that mother-of-pearl moon
under that desert sun
i would never wane
i would never run.
