lyrics

In bedsheet canyons
My sole companion's
The window's lonely screams
My eyelids heavy
With weights of memories
Lost at the eddge of sleep

The glacial rooftops
Their sequined mountains
Engulfed by milky waves
And in their shambles
The evening shadows
Act out their mournful plays.

When at the door
A shape appeared
With gentle smiles
Assuaged my fears
From dust to dust
Through strange frontiers
Lit by stars that hang
In drops of tears.

Through cosmic fault-lines
Our spirits entwined
In rings around the sun
And in the clear night
Our fates dissolved
Like the snowflakes on our tongues.

For countless dreams
I have roamed
The barren land
Between God and stone
From spacious highs
To oceans low
To wrap your heart
In lengths of gold.

Arise from the cradle of a dream this is when I lose you again
Arise from the cradle of a dream this is when I lose you again
Arise from the cradle of a dream this is when I lose you again
Arise from the cradle of a dream this is when I lose you again
Arise from the cradle of a dream this is when I lose you again
Arise from the cradle of a dream this is when I lose you again
Arise from the cradle of a dream this is when I lose you again.
