Moving Slow Through the Evening

In that dream, I’m as young as the grass
Still as starlight reflected in mountains
Children grown on the edge of the sky
Kept like a ring, kept with devotion

In that dream moving slow through the evening

You would leave me then without answers
Lick my wounds and remove my demands
Eucalyptus and orange trees are fading
In that dream, there’s no light alluded

In that dream moving slow through the evening

In that dream, I could hardly contain
All my life I will wait to attain
There, here, there

I know someday the fumes will all burn off
All these silences I’ll someday have turned off
I will see you someday when I’m broken
I’ll be so sad just to have spoken
I’ll have so much to tell you about

In that dream I could hardly contain
All my life I will wait to attain
There, here, there

Wide-eyed sleeper, don’t betray me
I will rise one day, don’t delay me
Wide-eyed deserter, always going
