Lifeline

lyrics

I've been lost in some growing gardens,
Resting in the space of your arms.
My feet are moving, walk and run through times that I should die,
But you bring me no harm.

Rain-scented silver comes and builds a new house for me,
And I hope I'll never get out.
They tell me it's a stage I'm going through,
But I've been having my doubts.

And here I am on time.
Will you throw me a lifeline?
I've seen spirits filled with fear and rotting on the vine,
But you're breath is in me now
And I hear it whistle all up and down my mind.

Nothing is sweeter than the softness of the hungry sky
When it calls out your name.
Green fields are full of the life of your flowered touch,
And now I'm feeling the same.

I want to know you like a saint, like a beggar man.
I want to cry in your ear.
I want to fly a million worlds out of reason's reach.
I want to touch you right here.

And here I am on time.
Will you throw me a lifeline?
I've seen spirits filled with fear and rotting on the vine,
But you're breath is in me now
And I hear it whistle all up and down my mind.
