Track Name: Second Space
I want you to step your earthy foot into the daily
I want you to pull me up into that great bleeding heart
I want to see you in both worlds

If I could spend a night without dreams
If I could spend a night in that endless day
If I could spend a night in that second space
Track Name: Why Go Back
If you could make it back home
You think you’d kiss the ground first thing
But you would spend a day
Squinting at the glint off the buildings
Another day wondering where you are and why nothing’s familiar

Why come back at all?

Right now a bowl of stew
Is more real than a golden inheritance
And the heart serves up a better meal
Than the feast of kings
They’re all strangers back there now, anyway, with their faces turned away

Why go back at all?

What’s right is right is right is real
Track Name: You Are
You are where the heavy grey sky
Meets the golden swaying
Reeds full of rosin-headed rushes

You are the organ
In the Eroica Symphony
The tiny book of portraits
In my pocket (book)

Oh, the beauty
Track Name: Don't Touch
When you touched my shoulder
You broke part of my delicate wing
You stole a feather from a fragile creature
Now I can’t fly away, away from you

Don’t touch, don’t touch me there; I’m scared of what I’ll do

When you speak to this one
Speak briefly; use an economy of words
I get a sinking feeling; fight or flight
Let me fly away, away from you

Don’t touch, don’t touch me there; I’m scared of what I’ll do

Falling, falling, falling down
Track Name: You Rest Me
You hover like fire over my chaos
Steaming storm-waters up into yourself

And you rest me; and you rest me
And you rest me; and I rest me.

I lay in your bed underneath your cover
Pull your wound over my bare skin

And you rest me; and you rest me
And you rest me; and I rest me.

You move, and you still me
You touch your palm to my breast

And you rest me; and you rest me
And you rest me; and I rest me.
