Blossom of Bone
Love is like a light that shines out of your window;
When the morning comes that light is slipping away.
In the dark of night your love glows brighter than moonshine;
But you fade to memory in the light of the day.
Borne on the wind, I fly to you;
Burn my wings, fall to the ground, tell me I’ve changed.
Love is cruel and love is grief, crucified in agony;
Burn my flesh right to the bone and wither to stone.
Love is like a flower that grows deep in your mind’s eye;
Skull and rib and broken spine laid in the soil.
In the shade of night your love grows under the moonshine;
Like a snake that coils and worms its way up throught the spoil.
Born from the earth, blossom of bone;
Raise my head, shed my skin, fall from the throne.
Life is cruel and life is grief, flowers scream in agony;
Sweat and tears, blood and bone, wither to stone.
How can the sun still rise?
How can the birds still fly, when love must die?
How can the light still shine, out of your window,
When after one brief night it’s slipping away?
Slipping away, slipping away.
Out of the cold, cold stone, Blossom of Bone.
