lyrics

I never got over you
the feeling I had known you before
the first time I saw you
walk through the door
Memories unremembered
at once remembered
the veil of time dropped to the floor
I saw myself die for your love
but I was in your arms
a thousand years ago

On ships of cinnamon and cardamom
I followed a raven to your shore
and I brought you all the spices of the world
tell me you remember
even if you don't
you took a button off my coat
all the spice and the sea air
you said that I was the best smelling man
in the world.

I will prove myself to be
the hero of all your history
your sacrifice your revolution
the remnants of your every beginning
in the wind like a dandelion seed
the ghost of me
will find
the ghost of you.

I'll build a house out of the stones
from the caves where we kept secret
from the wolves and the storms of the old world
I trace over your petroglyphs
until I can feel your hand in mine
until you are warm as a summer morning
until you are looking me right in the eye

And I will prove myself to be
the hero of all your history
your sacrifice your revolution
the remnants of your every beginning
in the wind like a dandelion seed
the ghost of me
will find
the ghost of you

My bones dream of being hollow
and hung from the waltzing oak tree
to sing and chime you the songs of the wind
you always moved like music
everything I needed to know
I learned from your movement
and your whispers
beneath the masks of god.
